Bio

“There are three essential qualities for a lawyer that cannot be learned or feigned: intelligence, diligence, and the elusive trait sometimes called ‘the judgment thing.’ I became a lawyer because I was told that I possessed all three, and I have not learned or feigned them since.”

Jonathan is a partner with Hellmuth & Johnson. His practice covers a variety of complex litigation matters, particularly in the areas of securities, commercial transactions, business torts, insurance coverage, consumer, employment, and antitrust. Jon's practice areas involve multiple parties and forums, giving him frequent exposure to difficult procedural, jurisdictional, and case management issues. 

He has provided representation in over 25 class actions, evenly divided between plaintiff and defense sides. In the insurance area, these cases have allowed John to develop deep knowledge and expertise in directors and officers and property coverage issues.

In addition to complex business litigation, Jon has also handled the defense of numerous civil sexual abuse cases against institutions.

Education

Jon earned his J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School where he was Associate Editor of the Vanderbuilt Journal of Transnational Law and on the Moot Court Board. He completed his undergraduate studies at Hamilton College, where he earned his A.B., cum laude, in Government and Economics.
