The Paris Office of Jones Day opened in 1970. Our lawyers advise a wide range of French, U.S., and other multinational clients on domestic and cross-border matters. Our clients include major corporate groups, as well as banks and financial institutions, private equity, real estate and venture capital funds, public agencies and entities, and other institutional clients. The Paris Office has more than 120 lawyers, including 35 partners. All Paris Office lawyers are fluent in French and English, and many are fluent in other languages also.

We serve our clients in respect of both "inbound" French law matters and “outbound” matters that call on the resources of the Firm’s fully-integrated worldwide network. Our practices include: mergers and acquisitions; private equity; capital markets; banking and finance; projects and infrastructure: restructuring and insolvency; real estate; environmental, health and safety; tax; EU and French competition law; French public and administrative law; commercial litigation; global disputes; intellectual property; information technology, cybersecurity and data protection; and labor law. Paris Office lawyers have specific sector experience in a number of industries, including automotive, oil and gas, energy, mining, chemicals, financial services, and telecommunications. A number of our Paris Office lawyers have experience in matters involving other French-speaking jurisdictions, including in North and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Through Jones Day's One Firm Worldwide approach, our Paris lawyers are integrated into our global organization of more than 2,500 lawyers. This affords our clients not only an international reach, but also seamless access to substantial legal resources wherever needed. Our European network of offices includes more than 550 lawyers in Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Milan, Moscow, and Munich.

Our lawyers are committed not only to our clients, but also to our community. We represent the non-profit organization Helen Keller International on a pro bono basis.  In an innovative public private partnership arrangement, Jones Day lawyers worked with the U.S. State Department to plan and complete the renovation of the historic Hotel de Talleyrand (former site of the U.S. Consulate in Paris), which has served as the premises of our office since April 2010.
