He also counsels lawyers in law firm structuring, partnership agreements, lateral moves, separation agreements, and law firm dissolutions. 

He frequently handles significant business fraud and commercial tort cases, including claims of tortious interference with contractual relations, breaches of fiduciary duties, misappropriation of business opportunities, Federal and Georgia RICO violations, and trade secret violations.  Additionally, Jonathan helps clients resolve contract disputes and real estate disputes. He has successfully tried cases to verdict in various courts and in arbitrations.
