Overview

A trial lawyer with keen business sense, Jason simplifies complex legal issues in order to help clients reach their objectives at each phase of litigation.

Jason is a relentless advocate for clients. He excels at crafting and executing winning strategies in the most challenging disputes. However, he also understands that at the root of every dispute is a business decision. That’s why Jason partners with clients to find winning paths that also minimize cost and business disruption.
 
Jason has amassed big wins as lead counsel at trial, on appeal and through dispositive motion practice. His clients trust him with their most important cases. Jason has developed a reputation for representing insurers in complex coverage disputes, but he applies his litigation skills and tenaciousness to many other areas, including commercial and business disputes, class actions, securities, shareholder oppression, fraud and IT disputes. His practice is national in scope, as he routinely litigates in state and federal courts and before arbitration panels across the country. Jason is also an accomplished lawyer at the appellate level, having argued and won appeals in several state and federal appellate courts.

Jason is a frequent speaker and presenter and has developed a substantial body of thought leadership addressing commercial litigation, insurance coverage and business and legal ethics. He is an active member of the Seventh Circuit Bar Association and has been recognized as a Rising Star by Wisconsin Super Lawyers®, a directory of leading practitioners published by Thomson Reuters.
