Jones Day mourns the loss of our colleague and friend Pat Hubbard who passed away on May 2, 2022. Pat designed Jones Day's privilege review process for our Second Requests antitrust discovery procedures in which our document vendors regularly remarked that Jones Day did that work better than anyone else. Pat was kind, patient, and had a tremendous sense of humor. He will be missed.

Pat Hubbard has gained broad experience in complex litigation in his more than 30-year career with Jones Day. His practice includes corporate criminal investigations, securities, antitrust, and multijurisdictional product liability cases.

He also participated in the Firm's representation of Chrysler and the City of Detroit in their respective bankruptcy proceedings. His practice also has focused on federal regulatory oversight of mergers and acquisitions, including regulatory compliance with the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act (HSR Act) and other federal antitrust investigations.
