PHILADELPHIA – Stradley Ronon Associate Kristen M. Feden was recently appointed to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Criminal Procedural Rules Committee. The committee is an advisory arm to the Supreme Court and assists the court in achieving its constitutional mandate to prescribe general rules governing criminal practice and procedure throughout Pennsylvania. The committee also monitors all local criminal rules as required by Pennsylvania Rule of Criminal Procedure 105 and periodically publishes reports explaining the committee's proposals for new rules and rule amendments.

Feden concentrates her practice on complex commercial and class-action litigation and white-collar defense.
