Randy K. Jones

Randy is an esteemed trial lawyer who draws on his extensive courtroom experience to provide value to clients, often through negotiating efficient solutions for clients well short of trial. Randy has litigated and tried to jury verdict hundreds of cases in federal and state courts after nearly three decades as an Assistant US Attorney and US Navy Judge Advocate. Clients who need seasoned courtroom practitioners have asked Randy to take charge of cases shortly before trials. He represents executives and companies across many industries in complex commercial litigation, civil and criminal investigations, and white collar criminal matters.

Randy represents clients in high stakes business disputes, healthcare and government fraud cases involving False Claims Act, Qui Tam, Anti-Kickback Statute and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act complaints, unfair competition, regulatory compliance, and sports law matters requiring top-caliber trial counsel. Randy also speaks on ethics and compliance training relating to corporate internal investigations, government investigations, cybersecurity, email communications and other business related issues. 

Randy works closely with clients to develop and implement crisis management plans to help avoid costly business disruptions, negative publicity, lawsuits and government investigations. Randy’s experience conducting federal grand jury proceedings gives him invaluable insight into the needs of institutional and corporate clients facing sensitive and high profile internal investigations.

Randy is uniquely qualified to take over cases from lawyers and law firms needing a more seasoned trial attorney, particularly in those cases that appear headed for trial. One of Randy’s recent representations involved the defense of an international commercial bank in an employment whistleblowing case relating to money laundering claims. Randy and his defense team, who were engaged to replace existing trial counsel on the eve of trial, secured a reversal of a denial of summary judgement from a Federal District Court that resulted in a prompt and favorable resolution of the action.

Prior to joining Mintz, Randy served as an Assistant US Attorney in the US Department of Justice. As a federal prosecutor, Randy was responsible for the investigation, management and prosecution of numerous cases involving complex white collar fraud schemes and criminal conspiracies involving financial, immigration, illegal narcotics and violent crimes.
