US law firm Jones Day has opened its eighth office in the United States, recruiting two litigation lawyers and one corporate lawyer from rival firm Barnes & Thornburg.
The hires include Roy Ginsburg, who has more than 35 years of experience in employment and commercial litigation, Annamarie Daley, who focuses on commercial litigation and federal regulatory matters, and Peter Ekberg, a corporate lawyer who specializes in mergers and acquisitions and private equity financings.
Spearheading Jones Day’s new office is current leader of the firm’s labor and employment practice in Chicago, Brian West Easley, alongside current capital markets partner Charlie Haag, who is based in the firm’s Dallas office.
Easley represents US employers in all aspects of labor and employment law, including domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and advises distressed employers with respect to labor and employment issues in bankruptcy proceedings across a number of sectors including private equity.
“For many years, the firm has represented clients based in Minnesota without having a local presence in the Twin Cities by applying the talents of attorneys in our existing offices in the Midwest and around the world,” Easley said in a statement. “We are fortunate to be joined in this effort by three of the finest attorneys in Minneapolis who share our commitment to unparalleled client service.”
Jones Day has made a number of appointments across its US offices this year. In May the firm hired Jackie Hodes as a partner in its global M&A practice in Miami and Daniel Michaels joined the firm's Washington office as a partner in its private equity practice in March, as reported by pfm.
Jones Day has more than 2,500 lawyers located in 44 offices around the world.
