What the team is known for The US-headquartered firm Jones Day has a well-established presence in Australia and maintains a strong US-Australia practice, notably in energy and natural resources. The firm's global clients align closely with the largest sectors in Australia's economy and enable it to draw on its experience with international business practices to deliver a seamless service between offices on cross-border mandates.

The full scope of the firm's practice in Australia encompasses transactional, dispute resolution and regulatory matters, and clients consistently recommend its integration into the wider Jones Day network.

Strengths Clients appreciate Jones Day's ability to efficiently link its Australia and US advice. One says: "They're very user-friendly and client-conscious, especially given the time zone issues and in translating different laws and the different systems in Australia and the US. It helps make things smoother; it makes that seamless."

Other clients identify the firm's "knowledge of how we do business in the US" as a key advantage over its Australian competitors and confirm: "The partners are extremely accessible and accommodating to torturous hours co-ordinating with the US. They know us very well because of the time together and they help our integrated system of using lawyers globally."
