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-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.
