Jones Day Demotes 5 London Partners

Law360, New York (November 13, 2009, 4:32 PM EST) -- Jones Day reportedly has demoted five of its London partners — about 10 percent of the partners in that office — to of counsel since the beginning of 2009 as American firms continue to scale back their domestic and international operations.

A Jones Day representative was not immediately available for comment.
