Former Partner Jason Knott Rejoins Zuckerman Spaeder
Zuckerman Spaeder LLP is pleased to announce that Jason M. Knott has rejoined the firm as a partner in the Washington, DC office.
Mr. Knott, an experienced litigator and employment lawyer, returns to private practice after serving as Chief People Officer for a rapidly-growing global technology company. Working closely with executive leaders and in-house counsel, Mr. Knott assisted the company while further cultivating his in-depth understanding of the challenges and pressures facing businesses and their workforces.
In returning to the firm, Mr. Knott will continue a broad-ranging civil practice focused on complex litigation, with a particular emphasis on matters involving employment, insurance, and health care. He will draw on his recent in-house experience to support executives and organizations in matters relating to Title VII, employment terminations, severance agreements, pay disputes, code of conduct breaches, and issues involving corporate culture. He also brings significant internal investigation experience, and will assist clients in responding to criminal, regulatory, and congressional inquiries, as well as internal workplace reviews.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jason back to our ranks, and this enthusiasm is shared by our long-term clients who have had the pleasure of working with him,” partner and firm chair Dwight P. Bostwick shares. “He is a thoughtful and pragmatic advisor and a true asset to our firm.”
During his previous time at the firm, Mr. Knott was a prolific thought leader, publishing numerous blog posts and articles tackling issues faced by employment attorneys and trial lawyers. He also actively pursued pro bono work, committing hundreds of pro bono hours to matters involving foreclosure, landlord-tenant law, indigent criminal defense, and election law. In 2018, he was honored by the Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia with its Making Justice Real Pro Bono Award.
