“I’ve been at the courthouse for three days watching lawyers, and I want you.” Jeff Ross heard these words following his cross-examination of a defendant business owner in a lawsuit alleging fraud and breach of fiduciary duty. The statement came from a man whose father taught him that if he ever needed a lawyer, the best way to find a good one was by sitting in courtrooms and watching. Jeff prides himself on developing lasting relationships with his clients so that when legal questions arise, he is the person they call.
Jeff’s practice focuses on civil litigation. He represents individuals, small businesses and large corporations in state and federal courts throughout Texas as well as in arbitrations and administrative proceedings. Jeff’s clients range from transportation companies and other insureds involved in personal injury and wrongful death suits to businesses facing more complex litigation involving commercial and intellectual property issues. Jeff’s experience includes negligence, products and premises liability, trademark/patent/copyright infringement, unfair competition, trade secrets, false advertising, fraud and breach of fiduciary duties.
In the context of intellectual property and other corporate transactions, Jeff frequently assists clients with protection of copyrights and trademarks and also provides advice regarding protection of trade secrets. He also has experience drafting licensing, distribution, white-label and non-disclosure agreements. On the transactional side, Jeff’s courtroom experience provides a unique perspective as he is able to draft and negotiate agreements with a view towards what will happen should the agreements later serve as the basis for litigation.
