An attorney at Kaufman & Forman, P.C., Johnathan Chiu has developed a fine reputation as a business trial and transactional attorney in his relatively young career. From the firm's office in Atlanta, Georgia, he provides representation to people and companies throughout the greater metropolitan area. Mr. Chiu has been admitted to practice before all Georgia state courts since 2016.

In his litigation practice, Mr. Chiu seeks to assist his clients in reaching strategic resolutions to business disputes. These can involve breach of contract actions, shareholder or partnership claims, business torts, intellectual property infringement, fiduciary duty breaches and real estate disputes. A formidable courtroom advocate for his clients, Mr. Chiu is also an experienced negotiator, and he will sometimes help his clients reach an accord on these matters without having to resort to lengthy litigation. His transactional background has encompassed advising entrepreneurs on the most appropriate form of legal entity for their new ventures, and he thereafter prepares and reviews employment and organizational documents, leases and other forms of agreements. Mr. Chiu also provides advice and counsel with respect to the amount and nature of regulatory compliance that his clients will need to face.

Majoring in business administration, Mr. Chiu attended the Georgia Institute of Technology as an undergraduate, and he received a Bachelor of Science in 2012.

While he was in law school, Mr. Chiu also served summer clerkships with a law firm in China as well as with his current firm, which he joined full time upon his graduation.
