Formerly an academic whose publications include both literary and legal scholarship, Mr. Jones is a seasoned litigator. Having worked at big law and boutique firms, he has represented major corporations, small and mid-market businesses, and individuals in litigation and appeals in both federal and state court on both the plaintiff and defense sides.
His experience runs the gamut: from high-stakes securities litigation involving fortune 500 companies; to helping to resolve a dispute between the former managers of actor James Franco, which was covered extensively by the entertainment trades; to helping litigate a potential seven-figure class action involving a private security firm in Iraq; to pro bono work, which includes obtaining the rare reversal on appeal of an improperly issued restraining order.
At his previous firm, Stris & Maher, Mr. Jones also co-authored winning U.S. Supreme Court briefs in Merrill Lynch v. Manning (No. 14-1132), Limelight Networks v. Akamai Technologies (No. 15-993), and Dollar General v. Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians (No. 13-1496).
