Attorney Profile

Jonathan R. Childers is an experienced trial lawyer helping businesses and executives prosecute and defend complex claims in Texas and throughout the United States.  He has a special focus on energy litigation, partnership and business ownership disputes, trade secret litigation, complex financial issues and damages, and high-stakes business torts.  Jonathan litigates and tries cases frequently involving breach of contract, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty (often in the finance and oil and gas contexts), theft of trade secrets, tortious interference, and business disparagement. 
His clients primarily comprise Texas businesses and executives, as well as businesses based outside of the state with important business interests at risk here. They include:

  • Energy-related partnerships, operators, and servicers;
  • Finance-related businesses and executives, including private equity and investment management;
  • Commercial real estate ventures, developers, and owners; and
  • Healthcare businesses and executives.

Jonathan served as a law clerk for the Honorable Sam A. Lindsay, United States District Judge for the Northern District of Texas, 2005 to 2006.  He is well-known by members of the local, state, and federal judiciary and bar community in Texas.  “Clients and peers know Jonathan as a smart, quick-on-his-feet, strategic thinker,” according to Michael K. Hurst, “who excels at taking a complex, factually jumbled case, making sense out of it, and taking it aggressively towards trial.”
Jonathan is known for providing top-notch, effective client service.  Clients choose him when they want a lawyer who thinks strategically, moves swiftly, is unafraid to go to court and try a lawsuit, identifies and exploits the business drivers underlying the dispute, and litigates boldly – having the heart, work ethic, and resourcefulness to win.      
Jonathan honed his disciplined, tenacious work ethic as a walk-on varsity swimmer at SMU, traits that he applies today in the courtroom, and as a dedicated masters-level swimmer.
