The programming is designed to help practitioners anticipate legal and industry trends, maintain a competitive advantage in contract construction and litigation, and stay current on best practices in risk management and insurance coverage in construction matters.

Jones focuses his practice in the areas of business law and litigation, commercial litigation and construction law. He advises individuals and businesses in wide ranging industries including construction, banking, manufacturing and distribution, real estate, transportation and insurance on issues related to risk management, pre-litigation resolution and all aspects of civil litigation.

Within construction law, his practice centers on construction defect and related contract litigation, including representation of owners, contractors, design professionals, sureties and suppliers. He is a contributing author to several construction law publications, presents on construction topics and is an active member of the Defense Research Institute’s (DRI) Construction Committee. Since 2012, Mid-South Super Lawyers has recognized Jones annually as a “Rising Star” in general litigation. In 2013, Arkansas Business named him to its “40 Under 40” list of business and political leaders. In 2014, Wright Lindsey Jennings elected Jones to join its partnership.
