Organization Profile
Professional Biography

Jay Williams is a Partner at ArentFox Schiff's Chicago office. During his professional career spanning more than 30 years, Jay has represented numerous individual and business clients—both plaintiffs and defendants—in numerous class actions, complex civil litigation cases, and white collar criminal matters across the country.

The range and scope of these representations have been extensive. He has vast experience in all forms of dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration, and has appeared before local, state, and federal agencies and courts—both at the trial and appellate court levels—nationwide (in more than 20 different states). In the last 20 years, Jay has focused his practice intensively on defending clients in class action matters and representing clients in a wide variety of other complex litigation cases, both in Illinois and all across the country.

Working with clients, Jay’s priorities are to provide lightning-quick responsiveness and identify at the outset what a “win” means from a practical business perspective. Jay assembles and leads teams of attorneys, collaborating efforts with co-counsel—either in-house, outside, or both—and understands that the client’s objectives are always best served when the legal team rows in the same direction.  He also works with clients to devise alternative billing arrangements when they help meet a client’s needs.
