October 30, 2017

James M. "Jimmy" Ardoin, a partner in the Houston office and member of the Corporate Compliance & White Collar Defense team, and Rick Schroeder, a partner in New Orleans office and the head of the Corporate Compliance & White Collar Defense team, were recently quoted in Texas Lawyer. The article, “Jones Walker Lands White-Collar Crime Defense Lawyer in Houston,” discusses Mr. Ardoin’s move from a solo practice to Jones Walker. Mr. Ardoin provides insight on how his move will improve his client service model, saying, “Really since Enron, it’s become clear that white-collar crime cases are becoming very complex cases and the clients are looking for firms that can handle those kinds of cases, the massive discovery that goes along with it.” Mr. Schroeder explains how hiring Mr. Ardoin will expand the firm’s footprint in the white-collar defense space in Texas, saying, “The white-collar lawyer we are looking for is not just the person who is at ease in front of a jury, but somebody who can walk into a boardroom. We find that the attorneys with the most courtroom experience give the best advice.”
