As the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, Jason Carter was raised surrounded by ambitious and supportive people. Backed by that support system, he saw his chance to make a difference in the state of Georgia and decided to run for governor. Unfortunately, he lost, but in that loss, he learned a lot—particularly about the importance of trying and failing as well as remaining authentic and grounded. Jason shares his story with Rebecca Glatzer in this episode of Bouncing Back: Resilience for Lawyers.
Jason Carter represents clients in high stakes trial and appellate business litigation including breach of contract, class actions, business torts and other complex commercial cases. Representing Plaintiffs, Jason has secured some of the largest verdicts and settlements in Georgia history, including multiple recoveries in excess of $100 million. Representing Defendants, he has achieved numerous defense victories in highly complex cases.
Jason’s expertise in intellectual property includes litigating common law intellectual property, trademark, trade secret and patent disputes. Jason is also a leader in the firm’s corporate recoveries practice where he helps companies identify, evaluate and pursue revenue-generating opportunities through the legal department.
Over his career, Jason has often had the honor of representing his fellow lawyers and some of the most prestigious law firms in Georgia and elsewhere.
Jason combines a successful litigation practice with a strong commitment to public service. Among other activities, Jason chairs the Carter Center’s Board of Trustees. From 2010-2015 he served in the Georgia State Senate, and he was the 2014 Democratic Nominee for Governor of Georgia.
Jason has been named to Georgia Trend’s list of the 100 Most Influential Georgians and has consistently been recognized as a Super Lawyer in Atlanta Magazine. Jason has received numerous other awards for his legal work and community service, including the Anti-Defamation League’s Stuart Eizenstat Award.
