Hahn & Hahn LLP attorney D. Jason Lyon has been elected to the firm's partnership, effective January 1, 2019.

“Since he joined us from Latham & Watkins two years ago, Jason has proven himself to be a dedicated advocate for his clients as well as for greater diversity in the firm,” said Managing Partner Karl Swaidan. “It was Jason who advocated for the firm to be certified as a majority Women & Minority Owned Business Enterprise.”

Lyon, a commercial litigator and the firm’s first openly LGBTQ partner, says he is excited to play more of a leadership role at one of the state’s oldest law firms as it prepares for the future.

“At 120 years old, Hahn & Hahn is practically an institution in this community,” said Lyon. “So I was very pleasantly surprised to discover when I joined the firm how forward-thinking and open to new ideas the partners are. I’m honored to help further our tradition of innovation in response to the changing needs of our clients and our community.”

Lyon, who obtained his Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and his J.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law, began his practice in complex commercial litigation, including international arbitration and securities fraud class action defense. His practice now emphasizes business disputes, pre-litigation risk mitigation and strategy consulting, and high stakes trust contests.
