Jones Day opened the Melbourne Office, its fourth office in Australia, in 2018 in response to Australia's growing role in the global economy, the importance of Melbourne as a center for corporate Australia, and the Firm's commitment to the country. Presence in Melbourne enhances the Firm's ability to serve clients in Australia's industrial capital, provide them with better risk assessment on global investments, and more efficiently and effectively resolve their disputes as they arise.
The Melbourne Office focuses on M&A, energy, IP, restructuring, and disputes, with an emphasis on the financial services, energy, mining, infrastructure, and pharmaceutical sectors. Australia's sophisticated and well regulated economy and wealth of mineral resources place it at the heart of the increasingly important Asia Pacific region. With Jones Day's integrated global network of more than 2,500 lawyers in offices across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, clients of our Melbourne Office have access to an unrivalled depth of experience which provides them with a nuanced view of law, regulations, and market practice in a range of jurisdictions.
