Testimonials

‘For white collar and investigatory matters, Jones Day is a firm that I would, and do, continue to contact. In my opinion, there are few firms with their pedigree on these matters.’

‘Sheila Shadmand very clearly understands white collar crime and internal investigations. More importantly, it would be easy for an attorney to treat my client like any other client, but Sheila works hard to understand the issues that are important to my client.’

‘Sheila Shadmand is a star!’

Dispute resolution: arbitration and international litigation Tier 4

At Jones Day, Pierre Heitzmann - of counsel at the firm - is praised for his work both as an arbitrator and counsel, and Sean Boyce is also recommended.

Testimonials

‘Pierre Heitzmann is a  conscientious and a very good arbitrator to discuss and agree matters with. Clearly very familiar with the DIFC-LCIA rules and experienced in arbitration both as counsel and arbitrator.

‘Teams from multiple offices work well together with very good coordination. Broad range of language competence.’

‘Pierre Heitzmann is very competent, complete English/French fluency and very responsive on a timely basis as issues arise – top flight.

Sean Boyce has huge future potential.

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 U.S. corporations for both transactional and disputes matters, and among the leaders in client service. Jones Day’s more than 1,600 lawyers across its 18 U.S. offices collaborate to serve clients across practices and geographies on all major matters that span time-honored 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, as well as Australia. Spread throughout ten offices in the region, the firm’s 250+ lawyers represent clients in practice areas including antitrust, banking and finance, capital markets, corporate and commercial, energy, global disputes, intellectual property, labor 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, 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.
