Review Jeffrey Horst

About Me

Jeff specializes in complex business litigation including accounting malpractice, corporate governance, contracts, insurance coverage, intellectual property, officer/director, securities and trade secrets.  Jeff has been recognized by his peers as one of the most effective business litigators in Georgia.  Many attorneys refer clients to Jeff because of his creative approach, trial experience, and successful track record in handling cutting edge legal issues.  He has tried cases in five states and has handled a number of high profile matters covered in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.  Jeff recently won a defense verdict for the CEO and EVP of a large Georgia financial institution in a shareholder derivative trial.
