The Best Lawyers in Australia™ 2023 recognizes 34 Jones Day lawyers

The 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in Australia™ has recognized 34 lawyers in 31 practice areas from across Jones Day's four Australian offices. This year, two associates have been recognised in the newly created category 'Ones to Watch.' Awarded to lawyers who are earlier in their careers, The Best Lawyers 'Ones To Watch' acknowledges outstanding professional excellence.

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

In addition, the publication awarded three Jones Day lawyers 2023 "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.
