Phillip Jobe is an associate in the firm’s New York Office. He joined the firm in 2019 and has significant trial experience in a wide variety of matters ranging from breach of contract and fiduciary duty actions, to disputes involving structured financial products, to securities-fraud class actions and federal criminal cases.
Recently, Phil was a member of the trial team that obtained a complete defense verdict on behalf of Elon Musk, Tesla, and current and former Tesla board members in a multi-billion-dollar securities fraud class action—one of the rare securities class actions to go to trial. Prior to that, he was a member of the team that obtained a complete defense verdict for Shawn Carter (p/k/a JAY-Z) and S. Carter Enterprises in a $70 million breach-of-contract jury trial in New York Supreme Court. Phil has been on numerous other trial and arbitration teams during his time at the firm, including in connection with a nine-figure jury trial involving collateralized loan obligations (“CLOs”), an arbitration involving a prominent music festival, and federal criminal cases involving charges of murder and armed robbery, among others. He has experience litigating complex civil and criminal cases at all stages, from inception, through discovery and trial, and on appeal.
Prior to attending law school, Phil spent several years as a criminal-defense investigator with the Orleans Public Defenders in New Orleans, Louisiana. He investigated more than 200 felony criminal cases during that time and prepared for and testified in numerous hearings and trials. As an attorney, he maintains an active pro bono practice, primarily by representing indigent individuals who have been accused of crimes.
