Jon is a partner in the Labor and Employment and Litigation practice groups at Kohrman Jackson & Krantz, in Cleveland, Ohio. Jon has a diverse background in innumerable litigation matters. He primarily concentrates his practice in the representation of companies in employment disputes and complex commercial matters, including litigation with terminated employees, disputes over trade secrets and non-competition agreements.
