Jon Landy, Co-Chair of the firm’s International Disputes practice, focuses his practice on international and domestic arbitrations. He has experience before many of the world’s leading arbitral institutions in matters that have spanned a range of jurisdictional law and subject matter, including an increasing emphasis in recent years on patent-licensing disputes. Jon’s experience in these matters involves a range of industries—pharmaceuticals, medical devices, semiconductors, and mobile telephony—and spans a wide array of factual, legal, and expert areas.
He is an experienced litigator outside of the international arbitration context, including in trial and appellate courts throughout the United States, in both bench and jury trials, and in civil, commercial, and criminal matters.
Jon also has extensive experience representing law firms in legal malpractice matters, financial services institutions and multinational corporations in commercial litigation and government investigations, and labor unions in government investigations and civil litigation.
Jon graduated from Dartmouth College, magna cum laude, in 1995, and in 1998 from the Yale Law School, where he was senior editor of the Yale Law Journal. Before joining the firm in 1999, Jon was a law clerk to Judge Louis F. Oberdorfer of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
Jon is Clinical Visiting Lecturer at Yale Law School, where he teaches Advocacy in International Arbitration. Jon is a member of the advisory board of the Celiac Disease Program at the Children’s National Health System in Washington, D.
