Business litigator Jasmine Wynton has joined Thompson Coburn’s Dallas office as a partner. Jasmine was previously an associate at Thompson & Knight and Jones Day.
Jasmine represents clients in a variety of business litigation matters in state and federal courts involving allegations of breach of contract, fraud, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and tortious interference with contracts and prospective business relations. Jasmine has guided clients through government investigations and litigation brought by the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission involving allegations of consumer, health care, and securities fraud. Jasmine also has significant experience in employment litigation involving state and federal anti-discrimination laws and other employment-related statutes.
“Jasmine is an outstanding litigator and a strong strategic thinker,” said Nicole Williams, the managing partner of Thompson Coburn’s Dallas office. “She has a remarkably broad range of litigation experience for a new partner and in her work for clients has demonstrated a total commitment to achieving their goals. We’re very lucky to have her join our growing team in Dallas.”
“I’m delighted to join Thompson Coburn’s new office in Dallas,” said Jasmine. “This is an outstanding group of attorneys, and I’m honored to serve Thompson Coburn’s clients in state and federal litigation in Texas and beyond.”
