Jon also has broad litigation experience in prosecuting and defending actions involving noncompetition agreements, restrictive covenants and trade secrets, ERISA class action and single plaintiff litigation, and defending employers from a wide variety of claims of discrimination in state and federal court.  Jon also has extensive experience resolving electronic discovery disputes and advising clients on how to best prepare their systems for e-discovery before litigation arises.

As a result, he is especially suited to understand his clients’ needs from a business perspective as well as the economics of litigation and trial, and to finding solutions for clients that are both fiscally and legally sound.
