Jones Day has been on a tear in Australia. The firm has more than doubled its size since 2014 and now operates out of four offices across the country. It has gone from a head count of 40 lawyers, including 13 partners in a single office, to about 100 lawyers, including 29 partners, who work out of offices in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne.

The growth Down Under is the result of a deliberate recruitment push that sets Jones Day apart from many of its peer global firms in the country, which chose to grow by merging with large local firms. DLA Piper, for example, combined with 700-lawyer alliance firm Phillips Fox in 2011; and K&L Gates merged with 300-lawyer Middletons in 2012.
