Women in Law 2022



S tephanie Jones has earned the reputation of having an unmatched work ethic, being fiercely devoted to her clients, and a natural leader. This reputation is illustrated by a key accomplishment - being named Assistant Managing Partner of Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani, LLP’s Chicago office at the age of 34. Her firm is the first and only law firm to have offices in all 50 states and Jones proudly helps manage one of its largest offices. As the daughter of two small business owners, protecting companies from business interruption and legal risk is part of the fabric of who Stephanie Jones is. In her practice, Jones defends manufacturers, business owners, premise owners, employers, decision-makers, and companies in commercial, business, employment, consumer, products liability, professional liability and environmental/toxic tort litigation matters. From complex litigation to negotiating through business disputes, her experience has given her the ability to provide a comprehensive suite of litigation services to her clients. Jones has argued before state and federal courts and agencies throughout the country, litigated at the trial court level and up to the appellate courts, and counseled clients through business divorces, regulatory compliance issues for new and innovative products, and complex employment disputes. Jones currently serves as National Coordinating Counsel to a Fortune 200 company for nationwide product recall litigation, regional litigation counsel for a foreign manufacturing client, and outside general employment counsel in employment matters to a national art supply company. Jones is also active in her support of women in the legal community. For example, she was one of the first attorneys in the Chicago area to organize and lead a sold-out panel on #MeToo in the workplace. She currently serves as the Vice President of the Chicago Chapter of the Coalition of Women’s Initiatives in Law. She is also active in the Women in Law Committee of DRI. In 2020, Jones was selected as one of the “40 Under Forty” Illinois attorneys to watch by the Law Bulletin Media, publishers of Chicago Lawyer magazine and the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin. Jones has also been named an Illinois “Rising Star” by Thomson Reuters’ Illinois Super Lawyers and an Illinois Emerging Lawyer in Commercial Litigation and Employment: Management Law by Law Bulletin Media Leading Lawyers. Outside the courtroom, Jones spends her time with her husband, two sons, and 14-year old Australian Shepard. She enjoys almost any competitive sport, but favors playing tennis, swimming, and running
