Winston & Strawn recently announced the addition of Jervonne Newsome to the firm's Dallas office, where she joined as a partner in the Litigation Department.

Jervonne concentrates her practice on representing Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, corporate officers, and individuals in a wide range of complex civil and business litigation matters, including those involving breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, business torts, employment law, noncompete disputes and intellectual property, including trade secrets and trademark and patent infringement.

"Jervonne is part of the next generation of talented Texas trial lawyers," said Dallas Office Managing Partner Tom Melsheimer in the press release announcing her arrival. "As Winston & Strawn continues to grow our trial practice in Dallas and throughout Texas, Jervonne will be a key player in that effort. I am very excited for her future at Winston."

"I don't view being an attorney as a job," Jervonne said in an interview with Law360. "It is a service and I have always been driven by being able to serve my clients and yield great results. It excites me to now be working with Winston's formidable roster of trial attorneys because I know that will give me the opportunity to take my services to the next level."
