The London Office was founded in 1986 and expanded significantly in 2003, when Jones Day merged with City firm Gouldens. With more than 175 fee earners in the center of the City, the London Office is an integral part of the global Firm. Our lawyers have extensive UK and international experience and provide domestic and global clients with high-quality advice across the full range of legal services.
Principal areas of practice in London include M&A, capital markets, private equity, banking and finance, business restructuring, investment funds, litigation, intellectual property, tax, and real estate. We also have teams of lawyers experienced in areas such as competition, environmental, employment, and pensions law. Jones Day London is part of the Firm's European network, which includes offices in Brussels, Frankfurt, Madrid, Milan, Moscow, Munich and Paris, and also is fully integrated into the Firm's global network of offices worldwide. Jones Day's "one firm" approach means all our clients worldwide can benefit from the Firm's extensive multidisciplinary international experience and obtain seamless access to the right legal resources from around the world whenever required.
Our active pro bono practice enables our lawyers to contribute their legal skills in service to the London community. As a member of LawWorks, we act for non-profit organizations on small community projects, as well as for venerable charitable institutions such as the Royal Academy of the Arts. We also have a decades-long relationship with the Waterloo Legal Advice Centre, to which we provide financial, administrative, and organizational support. On an ongoing basis, our London lawyers advise individuals who cannot afford to pay for legal counsel, and do not qualify for Legal Aid, on everyday legal matters, thereby helping them turn their lives around.
