Jackson Thomas represents clients in complex litigation matters with an emphasis on surety and construction claims.
With a focus on the surety and construction sectors, Jackson represents sureties, contractors, subcontractors, and project owners in a wide array of litigation and transactional matters ranging from complex surety claims to construction defect claims. He counsels clients through all stages of construction and bond claims from investigation through litigation and contractual disputes arising out of large-scale construction projects.
Jackson also has experience in a range of complex non-traditional claims, including allegations of fraudulently issued bonds and implied warranty issues. Whether enforcing a surety’s indemnification rights or assisting other construction industry clients recover on judgments, Jackson has significant experience turning judgments into an actual recovery by managing post-judgment collection activities ranging from execution and garnishment to the investigation of potentially fraudulent asset transfers.
Jackson also draws on a wealth of experience gained outside the surety and construction sectors over the course of his legal career, having represented numerous clients from the energy, transportation, and pharmaceutical industries in a variety of complex civil matters, including antitrust claims, SEC investigations, and patent litigation. He also has extensive knowledge of ESI-related issues, an in-depth understanding of many of the top e-discovery platforms, and experience planning, organizing, and managing large e-discovery projects. This has prepared Jackson to handle the often-expansive e-discovery demands of complex litigation matters that frequently prove critical to the outcome of a case.
