Jones Day's Houston Office, opened in 2001, is a full-service office with roughly 50 attorneys. We serve clients across a wide range of industries whether based in Texas, investing or operating in the region, or doing business globally. We bring to our clients the full range of Jones Day's resources from over 2,500 lawyers in more than 40 cities around the world.

From Houston we provide the full complement of legal services required for significant transactions and commercial arrangements, business restructuring and reorganization, and internal investigations and disputes. In addition to M&A, joint ventures, and commercial litigation, our capabilities include bankruptcy, cybersecurity and data privacy, labor and employment, intellectual propertyantitrust and other regulatory counseling, and securities litigation and SEC enforcement. Houston partners who served in the Department of Justice in Washington, DC and the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of Texas counsel our clients on antitrust investigations, enforcement actions, and merger reviews, and defend them in white collar criminal matters. Our Energy Practice routinely guides energy industry clients through complex transactions in the United States and abroad, including shale and conventional upstream development and transactions, midstream and downstream development and transactions, LNG matters, and state and federal regulation, including work before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Jones Day Houston lawyers support a broad range of nonlegal community and charitable organizations in Houston and throughout Southeast Texas, with a particular focus on children and education initiatives. Our "Pathways to Law" program partners Jones Day lawyers with a local middle school in an underserved community to work with eighth graders on basic advocacy skills through Fourth Amendment problems and mock trials. Houston lawyers are also among the 150 lawyers across the Firm who are representing mothers with children, as well as unaccompanied children, who are seeking refuge in the United States from violence in Central America
