A nationally known trial lawyer, McGuireWoods Chairman Jon Harmon represents Fortune 500 companies in bet-the-company litigation across the country. His clients include some of the largest U.S. financial institutions as well as telecommunications giants and leading automotive, food and product manufacturers.
Jon has more than 20 years of experience communicating complex information to juries in federal and state courts. Companies often call on him to "parachute" into high-exposure cases shortly before trial and he has won verdicts in some of the most difficult, pro-plaintiff venues in the United States.
With the overwhelming majority of his appearances resulting in defense verdicts, Jon also successfully litigates and resolves cases through dispositive motions or settlements.
Jon formerly led McGuireWoods’ Business & Securities Litigation Department. His business litigation practice spans complex commercial, fraud, class action, insurance fraud, complex business/civil tort, environmental, product liability, employment, construction, toxic tort, and federal or state protected whistle-blower cases.
