The Best Lawyers in Australia™ 2021 recognizes 27 Jones Day lawyers

The 2021 edition of The Best Lawyers in Australia™ has recognized 27 lawyers in 32 practice areas from across Jones Day's four Australian offices.

Best Lawyers® compiles its listings at the conclusion of a months-long peer review process, during which their researchers ask leading attorneys from specific practice areas and geographic regions about the professional abilities of their colleagues. 

In addition, the publication awarded two Jones Day lawyers 2021 "Lawyer of the Year (LOTY)" status. Best Lawyers selects only one attorney in each practice category and designated geographic region as their "Lawyer of the Year," making this recognition especially noteworthy.
