Biographical

Patrick G. Jones has been an attorney for over 35 years and brings a very diverse and unique background to his mediation and arbitration practice. He was a CPA with a Big Eight accounting firm; a partner in three large law firms in Atlanta during his first 17 years in private practice, where he practiced in the corporate and tax areas; the General Counsel of a public technology company for eight years; the Chief Financial Officer of that same company for four years; and the head of investor relations of that company for two years. During his tenure as General Counsel Mr. Jones handled over 100 merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions, and settled several significant patent infringement and employment cases through negotiation and over 20 shareholder lawsuits through mediation. Since leaving that company in 2003 Mr. Jones has been a mediator and arbitrator, and he also returned to practicing law in early 2007. Mr. Jones' background has proved to be particularly beneficial in handling pre-litigation business controversies such as shareholder disagreements, post-closing purchase price adjustment and indemnification disputes, business divorces and valuation issues. He has also served as an ADR consultant in an arbitration involving a post-closing purchase price adjustment following the sale of a company for more than $100,000,000. 

Mr. Jones has served as Chair of the Audit Committee and as a member of the Compensation Committee of a private technology company for more than 10 years, and has served as an advisor to the board of directors of a manufacturing company. He has also served on the boards of numerous nonprofit organizations, chairing two of them.

Mr. Jones was the Co-Chair of the Georgia Limited Liability Company Committee that drafted the Georgia Limited Liability Company Act, and he is the co-author of the Georgia LLC/LLP Handbook. He has also served as an expert witness on partnership law in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
