OVERVIEW

Jason Elliott's litigation practice focuses on individual and class action litigation covering all areas of employment law.  He serves as a partner in the Labor & Employment practice and extends his conflict resolution background through his advice and counsel to employers on a range of general employment issues.  He has experience as second-chair trial counsel, and regularly defends employers facing claims related to Title VII, ADEA, FLSA, FMLA, ERISA, ADA, NLRA, WARN, Equal Pay Act, Sarbanes-Oxley Act,  state statutes and common law doctrines, including unfair competition and covenants not-to-compete.    

In addition, Jason manages litigation matters involving intentional torts and commercial disputes such as claims for breach of contract, fraud, defamation and business disparagement. He has also represented clients on matters related to certain intellectual property disputes, including trademark infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets and conversion.  Another notable area of experience for Jason is the analysis of economic damages claim.  He has developed financial damages models for use in a wide range of class, individual and multi-plaintiff actions.  Jason refined these appraisal skills prior to his law career, when he worked at two Big Four accountancy firms as a consultant in the areas of business valuation and dispute analysis.

Jason received his J.D., cum laude, from SMU Dedman School of Law where he was a Hatton W. Sumners Scholar.  He maintains an active pro bono practice and has provided legal services for indigent clients and community service organizations.
