Jason Fulton is a litigation partner in the Dallas office. Jason handles all types of commercial disputes for plaintiffs and defendants in state court, federal court, and arbitration and has particular experience in representing owners and officers in disputes in private companies.

Jason spends most of his time representing clients in privately held companies and is often asked to represent them in a lawsuit related to a broken contract, or in a dispute related to the ownership, management, or finances of a private company. But he also works to help clients avoid litigation and work out a business solution that allows the parties to avoid the expense and burden of litigation if possible.

Jason joined Diamond McCarthy in 2008 after working in the Dallas office of a national commercial litigation firm and clerking for the Honorable Royce C. Lamberth of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. Prior to becoming an attorney, he worked on the options floor of the Philadelphia Exchange and the Pacific Exchange, and in commercial paper for a major issuer, giving him insight into securities, derivatives products and debt instruments.
Jason is licensed to practice law in Texas and is also admitted to practice before the Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western Districts of Texas, the 5th Circuit, and the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
