We serve local, regional, national, and international business interests in a wide range of markets and industries. Today, we have approximately 390 attorneys in Alabama, Arizona, California, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, and Texas.

Jones Walker is committed to providing proactive legal services to major multinational, public, and private corporations; Fortune 500® companies; money center banks and worldwide insurers; and family and emerging businesses located in the United States and abroad.

We have close ties to many types of businesses and industries, and our attorneys are heralded for their experience in several practice areas. We focus on building lasting relationships with clients and gaining a thorough understanding of our clients' businesses and industries. Regardless of the size of a client, we work with each client's specific needs in mind, focusing on achieving the best results in the most efficient manner.

Strong supporters of the economic, civic, and cultural communities in which we work and live, we participate in a broad range of volunteer activities that promote health, educational opportunity, and artistic development. Partners and associates in every office provide pro bono counsel to individuals and organizations that lack access to or the ability to pay for legal services, and many of our attorneys serve on the boards of arts, education, and service organizations across the region.
