Welcome to Jones Day U.S.
Welcome to Jones Day. Welcome to opportunity.
At Jones Day, your opportunities to develop your career - your legal skills, your understanding of the law, your relationships with colleagues and clients across the globe - are limitless.
Global: You have the opportunity to work seamlessly with clients and colleagues around the world. Jones Day provides significant legal representation for almost half of the Fortune 500, Fortune Global 500, and FT Global 500. Jones Day can provide integrated legal services of the highest quality because we are a truly global law firm with 43 offices in major centers of business and finance throughout the world, covering 18 countries on five continents. Moreover, we staff our projects by selecting the lawyers best able to meet the specific client's needs, regardless of location. We are looking for individuals who are excited to contribute to a global client service team.
Experience: You have the opportunity to work on projects that challenge your legal mind and expose you to the world beyond your local office. Jones Day is proud to have a 100-year history of representing corporate America, from John D. Rockefeller to Celgene. We have unparalleled experience in traditional practices like M&A, and "bet the company" litigation, as well as in emerging legal fields like cybersecurity/privacy. At the same time, we know that with the privilege of working at the forefront of the process of globalization comes responsibility to work toward ensuring that the costs and benefits of globalization are more equitably distributed. We have demonstrated this commitment through our pro-bono work, including with refugees from the violence in Central America. We are looking for individuals who are committed to tackling the sophisticated legal challenges posed by our global client base and to the authentic advancement of the rule of law.
Team: You have the opportunity to grow as part of a committed team, where we are all responsible for each other’s development and well-being, as well as to the continued success of Jones Day as an institution. Jones Day reflects this core value not only in how we interact with each other, but in how we are organized. Jones Day is a general partnership - a single true partnership - where the financial well being of our more than 4,500 employees rests on the advice each lawyer provides. This responsibility fosters a commitment to one another and reinforces the fact that we have collective duties—to clients, to the partnership, to all Jones Day employees and their families. We are looking for individuals who place client service ahead of individual advancement, and who want to be a resource for, and offer nothing less than their full respect to, their colleagues.
Mentoring: You have the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with colleagues who are motivated to share their knowledge with you and invest in your future. Jones Day attorneys prioritize the stewardship and future of our institution, and therefore the development of each new generation of lawyers. We invest in our people through formal and informal mentoring programs. Through the New Lawyers Group, our newest legal talent can explore their interests across our practice areas which provides them with mentoring relationships with leaders in each field. We are looking for bright legal minds who see their role not only as those seeking mentoring, but also those who will soon become mentors themselves.
Shared Purpose: You have the opportunity to use your creative and flexible thinking, and your commitment to cooperative and responsible team work, to contribute toward our shared purpose: excellence in client service. Jones Day's clients do not come to us for the easy questions. They rely on us to find the solutions in the gray areas, on the as yet un-trodden path, and with the relentlessness of purpose and attention to detail that they deserve. Our attorneys can successfully respond to those demands only if we share the highest ethics and standards for quality of work. We are looking for individuals who are committed to our fundamental values. We are looking for individuals who internalize and live the Jones Day Way.
Whether you join as a law student, a judicial clerk or a lateral, Jones Day provides opportunities for your development of a challenging and satisfying legal career with a global impact.
