Strategy and focus

George has extensive trial and litigation experience in all aspects of winning commercial cases, including breach of contract, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, declaratory judgment, negligence, defamation, civil rights and disputes regarding trusts, estates and probate. George represents shareholders, partners, members, directors, officers, trustees, executors, beneficiaries, individuals and entities regarding purchase and sale agreements, breaches of contract, usurpation, negligence, malfeasance, acquisitions, dissolutions, encroachments, boundaries, land use, restrictive covenants, easements, title insurance, liens, condominiums, municipal utility districts, construction, financing, workouts and debt restructuring, landlord/tenant disputes and civil rights.

George is the head of Nathan Sommers Jacobs’ litigation section. He utilizes his passion to push himself and his team to achieve the best possible result for every client.
