Jonathan T. Suder

After a federal judicial clerkship, Jon joined Fort Worth’s largest firm, where he was a litigation partner before co-founding FSC.  Later deciding to add patent-infringement and other intellectual property litigation to his practice portfolio, one of Jon’s early successes in that highly technical area was a multimillion-dollar infringement verdict against an American subsidiary of global giant Royal Dutch Shell plc, which was defended by its equally global law firm. The National Law Journal highlighted this case in its “Business Verdicts & Settlements” feature.

Since then, Jon’s reputation as a fierce protector of intellectual property rights has taken him to courtrooms around the country. Along with FSC co-founder Mike Cooke, he has assembled a team of lawyers—with diverse and extensive technological and engineering experience—ready to go head-to-head with the largest corporations, in any venue. For a video that takes a closer look at FSC’s IP-litigation practice, see here.


Jon has been accorded the highest Peer Review Rating™ by Martindale-Hubbell®: AV Preeminent®, and has recently been named a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation.
