Mark W. Jones

Mark Windon Jones helps public and private companies, as well as individual businesspeople and professionals, achieve their business goals while efficiently managing their legal and compliance risks.

Mark says, “I derive a great deal of satisfaction in my practice from ‘translating’ business principles and imperatives into legal frameworks that mitigate risk and maximize success. I advise decision-makers on legal matters that bear on both immediate business goals and long-term strategic plans.”

Mark has particular familiarity with financial institutions and community banks, while having also counseled clients in a broad range of other industries, including energy, manufacturing, retail, mortgage REITs, and corporate trust services. Mark states, “In my prior banking practice, I was able to assist clients in advancing business goals through a thicket of overlapping and intersecting federal and state regulations. I enjoy and bring value in doing the same for my clients in the heavily regulated healthcare space.”

He has extensive experience advising public and private companies with their transactional (capital raising and M&A), contractual, corporate governance, SEC reporting, exchange listings, and disclosure needs.

Mark’s capital markets experience is substantial, having represented issuers and underwriters in more than 100 securities offerings valued at over $35 billion.

He has represented acquirers and targets in both public and private mergers, acquisitions, and asset sales.

Mark has been a frequent speaker and author on various legal topics.

In his free time, Mark stays busy as a father of two and is also an avid reader. As a former Division I varsity swimmer at the University of Tennessee, he also tries to hit the pool as often as he can.
