Matt Skiba joined our New Lawyers Group (NLG) in 2019 following a clerkship with Judge Kevin Newsom on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. The NLG provides our newest lawyers with the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. Individuals in the NLG may focus on a particular area of practice, or compare practices, during their first year with Jones Day.
While in law school, Matt worked for the Northwestern University Supreme Court Clinic, where he assisted in drafting cert.- and merits-stage briefs to the United States Supreme Court.
