Jon Mureen is a first-chair trial lawyer for sophisticated business and energy disputes, marked by his ability to grasp the most complex issues and communicate them simply and persuasively to a jury or judge. Clients call on Jon to take their highest-stakes cases to trial, sometimes late in the litigation.
“Jon can best be described as an iron fist in a velvet glove,” says Denis Boulle, CEO of De Boulle Diamond & Jewelry. “He is highly intelligent, tenacious, and always calm under pressure. . . . And perhaps most important, the jury absolutely loved him!”
Jon has substantial experience in corporate governance disputes, shareholder rights, fiduciary duties, and business breakups. He has handled multiple trademark cases. Many of his matters focus on the energy industry.
But because of his skill in the courtroom, Jon is asked to take a variety of other types of cases to trial, too. Jon has significant jury and bench trial experience in federal and state courts and arbitration panels across the country, in matters ranging from corporate boardroom disputes to catastrophic personal injury cases.
Whatever the issue, clients know Jon will take ownership, find the path to victory, and get there quickly and efficiently. While this sometimes means a negotiated settlement, his philosophy is that the most favorable settlements usually come through superior trial preparation.
Jon’s sharp focus – early in a case — on what it takes to win at trial brings superior results and eliminates much of the unnecessary cost associated with pre-trial discovery (avoiding expensive rabbit trails that often bog cases down).
“Jon is a smart and savvy litigator who gets great results and gives excellent counsel,” says Carolyn Vaughn, President of VES Survey International. “He is someone I can trust with anything.”
Jon began his career with a clerkship for the Honorable Sidney A. Fitzwater, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas.
