Jason Armiger

Partner

Jason is no stranger to high-stakes litigation, and he has built his reputation on an impressive number of wins both inside the courtroom and out. Jason’s clients regularly rely on his counsel to avoid legal missteps and to aggressively enforce their rights at all stages of a dispute. His cases are complex, often involving disputes over business-to-business contracts, employment agreements including non-competition provisions, corporate governance and divorce, fraud and tortious interference, and trade secret and intellectual property litigation.

In addition to litigation, Jason regularly counsels  companies and senior management on employment and labor law matters. He assists with separations and terminations, negotiates onboarding and exit agreements, and helps companies craft compliant internal policies. Common issues include compliance with the MA Wage Act, the Overtime Statute, the FLSA, anti-discrimination statutes, the Noncompetition Agreement Act, the ADA, the ADEA, the FMLA, and other labor laws.

Background & Experience

Experience

For Jason’s clients, a lawsuit is often a business decision, and each unique situation presents its own nuanced risks and benefits. Jason’s clients rely on his impeccable attention to detail and thorough analysis of their options, as well as his significant trial experience, to provide the tools necessary for them to make the most informed decision possible at every stage of the process. Not every dispute needs to be litigated in court, but when it does, Jason has extensive experience in the Business Litigation Session of the Massachusetts Superior Court, the Federal District Court for Massachusetts, and both state and federal courts of appeal. In addition, Jason is particularly adept at identifying the optimal time to mediate or settle a dispute when that outcome is desirable, allowing his clients to get back to business.

Everyone agrees that, whenever possible, risk mitigation is preferable to litigation. To mitigate risk, businesses need strong contracts without exploitable loopholes, and Jason has a particularized skill identifying contractual weaknesses and drafting iron-clad agreements. Jason’s clients regularly rely on his skill drafting business and employment agreements that protect their interests, and Jason’s role as a leader in local bar associations helps him stay abreast of changes in the law and evolving legal strategies, giving his clients an edge over the competition.

Jason is an active member and leader at the Massachusetts Bar Association, the largest volunteer bar association in the state, where he currently serves on the Labor and Employment council and the Wellbeing Committee. Jason has served for several terms on the MBA’s House of Delegates, the body responsible for managing all public policy and advocacy issues pursued by the MBA.

Jason has been recognized as a leader in the law and the legal community. He has been selected as a Rising Star by New England Super Lawyers® every year since 2016, a distinction reserved for the top 2.5% of attorneys under 40 in Massachusetts. He is an MBA leadership fellow, he was awarded the MBA’s volunteer recognition award in 2018, and he was named a 2019 Up & Coming Lawyer by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly.

Outside of the office, Jason enjoys camping and hiking the Whites, gardening, and woodworking.
