Jones Day is a global law firm with more than 2,500 lawyers in 43 offices across five continents. The firm is distinguished by: a singular tradition of client service; the mutual commitment to, and the seamless collaboration of, a true partnership; formidable legal talent across multiple disciplines and jurisdictions; and shared professional values that focus on client needs.
The firm is committed to learning its clients’ businesses, objectives, and needs, and dedicated to developing and delivering innovative and cost-effective solutions to meet those needs. Jones Day lawyers are equally dedicated to managing matters to agreed scope, budget, and timeline, and communicating with, and obtaining regular feedback from, clients on a timely and proactive basis.
The firm’s 126 years of sustained growth—in experience and reputation—have been built by its dedication to serving clients as One Firm Worldwide, and doing so without regard to barriers conventionally imposed by geography, borders, time zones or language. All clients are clients of the firm, not of practices, offices, or individual lawyers, and Jones Day lawyers collaborate seamlessly across offices and practices to address client needs.

The majority of Jones Day’s Asia-based lawyers are admitted to practice local law in their home jurisdictions. Most have practiced in more than one country, enabling Jones Day’s Asia team to render multijurisdictional legal services. Jones Day has been granted a Qualifying Foreign Law Practice license (QFLP) in Singapore.
Surveys repeatedly list Jones Day as one of the most frequently engaged law firms by US corporations for both transactional and disputes matters. Jones Day has been ranked #1 globally by Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters in M&A deal count for each of the past 18 years. The American Lawyer named Jones Day as its ‘Litigation Department of the Year’ for 2018. Jones Day’s more than 1,600 lawyers across its 18 US offices collaborate to serve clients across practices and geographies on all major matters that span time-honoured practices (antitrust, mergers and acquisitions, litigation, and government regulation) to more recently established and expanded areas (cybersecurity, life sciences, energy, and technology) that specifically address the contemporary challenges of an increasingly complex global business and legal environment.
Europe & Middle East: Jones Day provides a significant presence in Europe that offers clients more than 500 lawyers from its ten European offices in Amsterdam, Brussels, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Milan, Moscow, Munich, and Paris. The firm’s lawyers counsel clients in administrative and public law, banking and finance, capital markets, competition law and regulatory, derivatives, market infrastructures, dispute resolution, and investigations.
In the Middle East, more than 20 lawyers are based in the firm’s offices in Dubai and Saudi Arabia. They have accumulated significant experience in most of the region’s key industries and jurisdictions, advising on mergers and acquisitions and corporate transactions, projects and infrastructure, commercial transactions, real estate and construction matters, regulatory compliance, and dispute resolution.
