His experience ranges from litigating in federal court and before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, to trademark clearance, prosecuting domestic and foreign trademark applications, and drafting and negotiating license agreements.

Before transitioning into a career as an attorney, Jason worked as a journalist in the Chicago area for more than a decade. For 10 years he served as the editor of DownBeat magazine, an international music magazine devoted to jazz and blues. At DownBeat he gained a deep understanding of the issues affecting musicians, record labels, music publishers, venues, and the other entities in the music industry, as well as the myriad issues confronting journalists and publishers. He also interviewed the likes of Dave Brubeck, Wayne Shorter, Wynton Marsalis, Herbie Hancock, and Joni Mitchell. He carries his experience in the music and publishing industries into his law practice.

Prior to joining Pattishall in September 2014, Jason worked as an IP Associate at two firms in Chicago. In addition, he served for a year as a law clerk for the Honorable Harry D. Leinenweber in the Northern District of Illinois. He earned his J.D. from The John Marshall Law School, and his B.S. in journalism from Northwestern University.
