Candice J. Enders is a Shareholder in the Berger Montague Antitrust Practice Group. Candice has over two decades of experience representing businesses, individuals, and municipalities in complex antitrust class action cases.

Ms. Enders has significant experience investigating and developing antitrust cases, navigating complex legal and factual issues, negotiating discovery, designing large-scale document reviews, synthesizing and distilling conspiracy evidence, and working with economic experts to develop models of antitrust impact and damages.

Her work on antitrust conspiracy cases has contributed to significant settlements totaling hundreds of millions of dollars, including in In re Commodity Exchange, Inc. Gold Futures & Options Trading Litigation, No. 14-2548 (S.D.N.Y.) ($152 million in total settlements); In re Domestic Drywall Antitrust Litigation, No. 13- 2437 (E.D. Pa.) ($190 million in total settlements); In re Commodity Exchange, Inc. Gold Futures & Options Trading Litigation, No. 14-2548 (S.D.N.Y.) ($60 million settlement with Deutsche Bank preliminarily approved; preliminary approval of $42 million settlement with Defendant HSBC pending; litigation continuing against remaining defendants); and In re Microcrystalline Cellulose Antitrust Litigation, No. 01-111 (E.D. Pa.) ($50 million settlement achieved shortly before trial).

In addition to her case work, Ms. Enders contributes to the administration of the Firm by serving as the Firm’s Attorney Recruitment Coordinator, Paralegal Coordinator, and a member of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Task Force.


Kelsey McCann is Edelson PC's Chief of Staff. In her role, Kelsey weighs in on and executes strategic planning, including HR issues, public relations, pro bono initiatives, staffing and the firm’s general strategic vision.

As the Chair of the Hiring Committee, Kelsey develops and executes the firm’s recruitment efforts, including screening and evaluating lateral hires (including attorneys and non-attorneys) for both permanent and temporary work. She also leads the Summer Associate committee, where she evaluates law students and college interns for the firm’s summer program and structuring the various aspects of the summer program, including the firm’s unique training model.

Kelsey’s creation and leadership of diversity efforts within the firm has made her a national thought leader. She created novel outreach programs to law schools, law school groups, and attorney organizations in order to broaden the pool of applicants the firm was seeing. Today, as a result of her efforts, Edelson PC is considered one of the most diverse “high stakes” plaintiff’s firms in the country, and was recently awarded the Diversity Initiative Award, given to the plaintiff’s firm demonstrating a successful effort to promote diversity within its organization and the profession at large by The National Law Journal. The firm also has been recognized as having the second highest lawyer satisfaction rate in the country by Law360 and the highest one nationally by Above the Law.

Kelsey also works with the different practice groups and the individual employees to set and execute short and long term individual and firm-specific goals.
