Question about English (US)

Does the meaning of the sentence change if I replace "to take on" with "to undertake" in the following sentence?

"I want to take on the Cayhall case," Adam said slowly.

That's the sentence I found in the novel titled "The Chamber" by John Grisham.
Adam is the grandson of a death‐row convict and he wanted to represent his grandfather to save him from death penalty.
It may sound strange to you, but as a non-native English speaker, I oftentimes have difficulty understanding or sensing such simple phrases as "take on."
