Jones Day partner Yvette McGee Brown named to Savoy Magazine’s 2019 Most Influential Women in Corporate America list

Yvette McGee Brown, Jones Day’s Partner-in-Charge of Diversity, Inclusion & Advancement and a partner in the Firm’s Business & Tort Litigation Practice, has been named to Savoy Magazine's list of the 2019 Most Influential Women in Corporate America.

The Savoy selection committee includes its editorial board and community leaders with representatives from the academic and business arenas. This year, the committee reviewed information on more than 500 professionals and listed those with the most exemplary record of accomplishments and influence while working to better their community and inspire others. Published quarterly and distributed via subscriptions and newsstands worldwide, Savoy Magazine is a national publication covering the power, substance, and style of African American lifestyle.

Based in the Firm’s Columbus Office, Ms. McGee Brown brings a unique perspective to litigating complex legal matters that has been honed from her experience both before and behind trial and appellate court benches. Yvette's 11 years as a jurist were highlighted by her service as a Justice on the Ohio Supreme Court, the first African American woman to serve in that capacity, after which she returned to private practice, assisting clients across a variety of industries and a range of difficult legal issues. This includes defending clients from spurious employment and fraudulent contract claims, representing policyholders in insurance coverage matters, as well as federal, state, and local government regulatory matters. She divides her time between initial trial court representations and appellate matters. Most recently, she represented clients on appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court and in Title IX litigation.

Jones Day is a global law firm with more than 2,500 lawyers in 43 offices across five continents. The Firm is distinguished by: a singular tradition of client service; the mutual commitment to, and the seamless collaboration of, a true partnership; formidable legal talent across multiple disciplines and jurisdictions; and shared professional values that focus on client needs.
