Highlighting the importance of engaging global law firms committed to making
a positive difference in local communities, Boston Bar Association President
Donald R. Frederico today welcomed Jones Day as a BBA Sponsor Firm. Jones
Day, a law firm with more than 2,500 lawyers and 34 offices throughout the
United States, Europe, Asia, and South America, opened its Boston office last
"Jones Day has an exemplary reputation for excellence and public service, and
we are delighted to welcome them to the ranks of our Sponsor Firms," said
Frederico. "Many of the lawyers at Jones Day have strong ties to Boston, and
some have served as leaders at the BBA or its charitable affiliate, the Boston
Bar Foundation. By becoming a BBA Sponsor Firm, Jones Day is demonstrating
its commitment to Boston and to the BBA’s mission of advancing professional
excellence, access to justice, and service to the community."
Jones Day's Boston office will offer a full complement of legal services, as
well as Jones Day's one firm worldwide access to its lawyers around the Globe.
The firm expects there will be close to 20 lawyers in the office by the end of
the first quarter in 2011.
"Jones Day is committed to being
actively involved in the Boston community, and that means, in the legal
community, being actively engaged in the BBA," said Traci Lovitt,
partner-in-charge of Jones Day's Boston office. "The BBA is a fantastic
organization that truly cements the Boston legal profession, and Jones Day is
proud to be a part of it. We expect to benefit from Boston's vibrance, both here
and as conduits to our colleagues around the world, and we intend to contribute
to it as much as we can. Partnering with the BBA is a great way to start that
