On March 1, 1893, Judge Edwin J. Blandin and William Lowe Rice founded a new law firm in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. More than a century later, Jones Day has evolved into one of the most recognized law firms - a truly global Firm of more than 2,500 lawyers in 43 offices around the world. As our clients transformed from local companies to national and then global enterprises, the Firm has grown with them to meet their changing needs. More information can be found on the History page under the Firm section of this website.
There are approximately 1,700 lawyers in the U.S., 150 in Asia, 90 in Australia, 600 in Europe, 55 in Latin America, and 20 in the Middle East.
