Highlighting the importance of engaging global law firms committed to making a positive difference in local communities, Boston Bar Association President Donald R. Frederico today welcomed Jones Day as a BBA Sponsor Firm. Jones Day, a law firm with more than 2,500 lawyers and 34 offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and South America, opened its Boston office last month.
“Jones Day has an exemplary reputation for excellence and public service, and we are delighted to welcome them to the ranks of our Sponsor Firms,” said Frederico. “Many of the lawyers at Jones Day have strong ties to Boston, and some have served as leaders at the BBA or its charitable affiliate, the Boston Bar Foundation. By becoming a BBA Sponsor Firm, Jones Day is demonstrating its commitment to Boston and to the BBA’s mission of advancing professional excellence, access to justice, and service to the community.”
Jones Day’s Boston office will offer a full complement of legal services, as well as Jones Day’s one firm worldwide access to its lawyers around the Globe. The firm expects there will be close to 20 lawyers in the office by the end of the first quarter in 2011.
