Jonathan Marcus is committed to giving clients first-rate representation in an attentive and accessible way. With creativity and calm, he helps companies and individuals aggressively pursue their goals, both in and out of the courtroom.

Jon has a broad litigation practice with an emphasis on complex business disputes in federal and state courts. He has successfully represented clients in matters involving commercial contract claims, business tort claims, insurance claims, wrongful termination of employment claims, and restrictive covenants. Jon has also prevailed on behalf of residents and corporations opposing large real estate developments.

Prior to joining Marcus & Shapira in 2012, Jon worked in New York City at Quinn Emanuel, the largest law firm in the country devoted solely to business litigation, where he represented clients in matters ranging from pharmaceutical patent infringement to antitrust litigation. Jon then joined Arnold & Porter, a global full-service law firm in Washington, D.C., where he gained additional experience working on securities enforcement and government contracts litigation. After his initial years in private practice, Jon was a Trial Attorney for the United States Department of Labor. As a government lawyer, Jon negotiated favorable settlements of nearly 150 cases within eight months and successfully argued at trial that a monetary penalty assessed against a large mine operator should be multiplied eightfold.

Jon graduated from the New York University School of Law in 2004, Boston University School of Communications in 1996 (M.S. Broadcast Journalism), and the University of Michigan in 1994 (B.A. English Literature). After earning his master’s degree, Jon spent four years working as a television sports and news anchor/reporter in Montana and Virginia.

Jon is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., New York, and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
