Jones Walker LLP

At Jones Walker, we look beyond today’s challenges and focus on the opportunities of the future. Since our founding in May 1937 by Joseph Merrick Jones, Sr., and Tulane Law School graduates William B. Dreux and A.J. Waechter, we have consistently asked ourselves a simple question: What can we do to help our clients succeed, today and tomorrow?

Over the following eight decades, this forward-thinking attitude and focus on client service has supported our evolution into one of the largest law firms in the United States. We have helped clients weather world wars and economic recessions, identify and take advantage of growth opportunities, create and support a more diverse workforce, and adapt to fast-paced changes in technology and global trade.

Today, we have more than 355 lawyers practicing across the country and internationally, from offices in Atlanta, Georgia; Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and New Orleans, Louisiana; Birmingham and Mobile, Alabama; Houston and The Woodlands, Texas; Jackson, Mississippi; Miami, Florida; New York, New York; Phoenix, Arizona; and Washington, DC. We counsel multinational corporations, privately held and family-owned businesses, individual and institutional investors, educational and research institutions, and other clients in a broad range of legal disciplines.

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.
