News Brief Find out if this Firm is Hiring




Washington 

Overall Review:  Jones Day has the most unusually located offices of any firm in the city, just northwest of the Capitol in the historic Acacia Insurance Building, nestled in the row of labor union headquarters on Louisiana Avenue. With fifteen foot ceilings, views reminiscent of Mr. Smith Goes To Washington, and a lobby that looks "how a big DC firm ought to look," Jones Day DC is Truly Impressive.

Unfortunately, the ambience of the place - which can really go to one's head - is destroyed by a hideous Leroy Nieman wall mural depicting President Kennedy. I mean, who is this guy, anyway? why is he hanging around the lobby? what message is the firm trying to send by showing him off in garish yellow and pink?

Unfortunately for Jones Day, the Nieman painting together with the lovely way that this site lumps together all statistics without any sort of weighting, means that what I think of as a "Terrific" firm in most respects comes out scoring something like a 5.37. Perhaps the powers that be will get this message and take down the Kennedy, thus allowing the firm to rise to the ranking it rightfully deserves.





Dallas 

Overall Review:  It is true, this firm is a total sweat shop. Jones Day Nights and Weekends (add holidays too!! 4th July, and an 80 hour billable week the week of Christmas). They say they require 2000 hours, but I billed well over 2500 last year. Partners pile on the work and expect you to have it done on completely unreasonable deadlines. NO BONUS either. Pay Suck for how many hours you are required to work.

Dallas 

Firm Culture:  Elitist
Work & Hours: Official requirement is 2000 hours per year, but the real requirement is at around 2400.
Salary & Benefits:  They don't pay enough for the hours worked or the amount of political crap associates have to put up with.
The Interview process:  Superficial.
Overall Impression:  If you are interested in actually advancing your career, doing interesting work, being mentored and being praised for your work, Jones Day is not the place for you. The firm lures law students with their impressive offices, seemingly endless resources, prestige (arguably undeserved) and a fun summer clerkship, but after the first year all pretenses are discarded. The firm does not care about the development of its associates. They require that you work endlessly for them, make sacrifices in your personal and family life, and sacrifice the progress or your career for absolutely no recognition in the end. They have no system for assigning work and most of the valueable assignments go to the associates who are preferred because they play better politics -- everyone else is edged out. The firm also has no system for tracking whether their associates are adequately developing their skill sets--and they really don't care if you are. Typically, 5th and 6th year associates are still working on document reviews at Jones Day. If you want to work at a prestigious firm because you went to a prestigious law school (and have the student loan debt to show for it), do not go to a firm like Jones Day that does not appreciate your ability and intellect.



Atlanta 

Firm Culture:  The diversity requirement has been filled.
Work & Hours: This office is similar to the other Jones Day offices written about on the page. You trade in your life and your friends and family for a career where you are rarely appreciated for the slave-like hours you put in to your job. If your career as a lawyer is your only priority, this is the place for you. You have to bill the same amount of hours on holiday weeks as those without holidays. They entice you as a law student by telling you that they want you to live a well-rounded life and become the best attorney you can be, but what they really mean is that an attorney is all you will be. The partners pass down work without regard for those beneath them or your development as a lawyer or outside of the firm. Billable hours are their one and only concern. You will become great at your job but at the sacrifice of having friends and family.
Salary & Benefits:  They have Competitive pay, but you will never make enough money for the hours you must put in.
The Interview process:  Interview process is rather typical for a large law firm.
Overall Impression:  Before you take a position at Jones Day consider whether you mind working to the exclusion of everything else in your life.

The case of Orthotec v. REO Spineline had been pending for two years when Orthotec chose to add Theken Spine, LLC, as a defendant. Orthotec did not plead that Theken had itself done anything wrong. Orthotec alleged only that Theken had acquired the assets of REO Spineline when REO went out of business, so Theken should be liable for REO's alleged misconduct. Orthotec's complaint sought over $10 million in damages.

Theken, which is based in Akron, Ohio, required lawyers in both Ohio and California to defend this lawsuit in federal court in Los Angeles. After just six months of intensive work, Jones Day succeeded in obtaining summary judgment on behalf of its client, Theken Spine. The Jones Day team consisted of Mark Herrmann in the Cleveland Office and Kevin Dorse, Richard Kovacik, Sophia Chang, and Jessica Repa in Los Angeles.

A couple of years ago, famous trial lawyer Dicky Scruggs filed a number of class action lawsuits against some of the largest nonprofit hospitals in the country. Under the gun for allegedly charging uninsured patients more than insured patients, eight of the hospitals immediately turned to the law firm Jones Day for defense.

It turned out to be a wise decision. All the cases at the federal level and nearly all at the state level were dismissed, the firm said, thwarting Scruggs' attempt to duplicate his success against the asbestos and tobacco industries.

""That's what we do best, and that's what we're known for,"" said Kevin Lyles, co-chair of Jones Day's health care practice group and a partner in the firm's Columbus, Ohio office. ""When the industry is hit with something big, we get lawyers ready to handle it for them.""

With over 2,200 lawyers in 30 offices around the world, Jones Day is one of the largest international law firms. Its health care practice group alone has about 75 attorneys, with expertise in mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, finance, antitrust, managed care, executive compensation and numerous other areas of the law.

""We have a very deep bench in a lot of different subjects,"" said Greg Luce, another co-chair in the health care practice group. ""But what's really the hallmark of our practice is that we have a very collaborative approach to representing our clients.""

Luce, a partner in the Washington, D.C. office, said he worked with attorneys at the other offices around the country to find the right lawyers for each client.

""Jones Day, unlike most other law firms, has a compensation system that awards integration and cooperation as opposed to what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine as well,"" added Ross Stromberg, a partner in the San Francisco office and a third co-chair of the health care practice group. ""We try to put the best people on the ground for a project.""

Along with the firm's pharmaceutical team, the health care practice group represents some of the biggest multi-hospital health systems, hospitals, physician groups, health care insurers, managed care organizations, pharmaceutical companies and assisted living companies in the country.

For example, it has served as national coordinating counsel for Wyeth in all product liability claims involving the antidepressant drug Effexor, and it is also defending Bayer Corp. in 37 antitrust cases that arose out of a 1997 settlement regarding the antibiotic Cipro.

The firm is also representing Abbott Laboratories in patent litigation with Mylan Pharmaceuticals over Depakote, King Pharmaceuticals in litigation with Teva Pharmaceuticals over a generic version of the sleep aid Sonata, Pfizer in litigation with Dr. Reddy's over the patent for Norvasc before the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, and P.N. Gerolymatos in litigation with Prana Biotechnology and Massachusetts General Hospital over the patent

for the topical skin medication Clioquinol. Other well-known Jones Day clients include Capital Blue Cross in Pennsylvania, Merrill Lynch & Co. in New York, the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, and the Ohio State University Medical Center.

Furthermore, the firm is currently defending much of the hospital system in two large class action suits. In the first of those cases, nurses have sued hospitals for depressing wages, while the other case, filed by Erin Brockovich of movie fame, deals with Medicare secondary payer litigation.

""Very few law firms could step up to the plate, and I don't think there are any firms that could handle it the way we do,"" Stromberg said. ""We've got the scale and the large scope to handle those matters,"" Lyles added. ""We can coordinate those things on a national basis for our clients because of the breath of our experience."" Lawsuits against the health care industry have soared in recent years, and by extension, so has Jones Day's practice.

""This is an industry that's just become the favorite target of plaintiffs lawyers that used to pursue their living looking at other industries,"" Luce said. The health care practice group was founded more than 15 years ago to bring together expertise from a number of legal disciplines. At first, it had a nucleus of 15-20 lawyers, Luce said, but it has since grown to its current level of 75.

""Our litigation practice has grown exponentially in the last five years,"" Luce said. ""Our reach is…both vertically and horizontally substantially broader than what it was.""

With so many attorneys in the practice group, each is specialized toward a specific subgroup of health care law. The practice group also keeps in regular contact with the Internal Revenue Service, monitors Congressional hearings and keeps its clients posted on relevant developments.

""It's truly trying to get the right lawyer for the job with the right expertise,"" Lyles said.
