Jonathan F. Donath is Of Counsel firm where he represents clients in a variety of litigation matters, specializing in commercial, pharmaceutical/products liability and labor and employment litigation.

Jonathan has amassed nearly a decade of experience in mass tort/multi-county litigation cases in New Jersey, having defended the firm’s institutional clients in this high-stakes litigation throughout his tenure with the firm and has garnered a series of favorable resolutions in recent years. 

He also was the lead associate on behalf of a restaurant franchisee client of the firm in a group of cases filed in connection with a food-borne illness outbreak.  The firm’s client, named as a defendant in each of these cases, was, ultimately, dismissed from the litigation without having to contribute financially to the eventual global settlement.

Jonathan is also engaged in a variety of commercial litigation disputes, and has recouped hundreds of thousands dollars for the firm’s clients through his efforts in these matters.

Jonathan has also participated in the briefing for several appeals filed in New York’s Appellate Division and recently argued before the First Department.  Finally, Jonathan routinely represents employers in employment litigation matters brought in the District of New Jersey, the Superior Court of New Jersey and before the EEOC and New Jersey’s Division on Civil Rights.

Jonathan served as law clerk to the Honorable Bryan D. Garruto, Superior Court of New Jersey, Middlesex County, for the 2006-2007 Term.  Jonathan joined the firm in 2007.
