Jon Harmon
McGuireWoods LLP

Jon Harmon, a nationally known trial lawyer and McGuireWoods Chairman, focuses on empowering clients to meet their strategic business goals, fostering innovative approaches to client service and the practice of law, and building upon the firm’s dedication to diversity, pro bono and community service.


Harmon represents Fortune 500 companies – including some of the largest U.S. financial institutions as well as telecommunications giants and leading automotive, food and product manufacturers – in bet-the-company litigation across the country. Companies often call on him to “parachute” into high-exposure cases shortly before trial, and he has won verdicts in some of the most difficult, pro-plaintiff venues in the United States.


Harmon formerly led McGuireWoods’ Business & Securities Litigation Department, and his practice spans commercial, fraud, class action, insurance fraud, business/civil tort, environmental, product liability, employment, construction, toxic tort, and whistleblower cases.


Harmon has twice been named to BTI Consulting Group’s Client Service All-Stars list.


Harmon graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the University of Texas School of Law. Jon currently is the only African- American chairman of an Am Law 100 law fi rm.
