Firm Overview:
Jones Day is a global law firm with more than 2,500 lawyers in 42 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’s 125 years of sustained growth — in experience, reputation and successful client interaction — have been built by its dedication to a ‘One Firm Worldwide’ philosophy, which fosters the creation of interoffice and cross-practice teams, assembled to ensure that clients receive the best possible guidance and representation, without regard to barriers conventionally imposed by geography, borders, time zones or language.

Regions of Practice: 

United Kingdom: Jones Day’s London office, drawing on the firm’s rich heritage in M&A and litigation, has grown into the largest office outside the US. Jones Day’s work in the UK reflects the firm’s vast cross-border transactional and disputes experience by helping clients with multi-jurisdictional transactions and disputes, relying on English law for their documentation and resolution. The 185 London-based lawyers collaborate within the UK and across offices worldwide, to guide clients through the most demanding and complex global matters, including cross-border M&A, real estate, and finance transactions, as well as regulatory issues involving the UK, US, and other authorities. Jones Day’s London lawyers also provide extensive experience in business restructuring, competition/antitrust, corporate tax planning, employment and pensions, energy, intellectual property, along with projects and infrastructure.

Europe & Middle East: Jones Day provides a significant presence in Europe that offers clients more than 500 lawyers from its nine European offices in Amsterdam, Brussels, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Milan, Munich, and Paris. The firm’s lawyers counsel clients in administrative and public law, banking and finance, capital markets competition law and regulatory, and 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.

United States: 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 offers more than 1,600 lawyers across its 18 US offices. The firm collaborates 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.

Asia-Pacific: Jones Day has committed substantial resources and capacity to serve each of Asia’s distinct markets, including China, Japan, Singapore and Southeast Asia, and Australia. The firm’s 250+ lawyers are spread across ten offices. Their experience representing clients throughout the region covers practice areas including antitrust, banking and finance, capital markets, corporate and commercial, energy, global disputes, intellectual property, labour and employment, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, real estate, and several others. 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, making Jones Day’s Asia team particularly qualified to render multijurisdictional legal services. Jones Day has been granted a Qualifying Foreign Law Practice license (QFLP) in Singapore.

Latin America: Jones Day is one of the leading global law firms serving the Latin American region through its offices in Mexico City, São Paulo, and Miami, along with attorneys based in key business and legal centres such as New York, Houston, Dallas, and Madrid. Jones Day’s Latin American experience extends to mergers and acquisitions, investigations and anti-corruption, projects and infrastructure, banking and finance, energy, dispute resolution, business restructuring, private equity and capital markets.
