"Adam is highly respected in the Australian legal market," said Chris Ahern, partner-in-charge of Australia and Japan for Jones Day. "He is a great representative for Jones Day in the region and will be very effective in fostering the continued collaboration of our Perth lawyers with our peers in Jones Day offices around the world. I look forward to working closely with him in the months and years ahead."

The firm’s Perth lawyers are known for their projects and energy sector work for Australian and international clients. They are also known for being particularly strong in litigation and dispute resolution.
