Christopher D. Edelman

Chris Edelman joined our New Lawyers Group (NLG) in 2015. The NLG provides our newest lawyers with the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. Individuals in the NLG may focus on a particular area of practice, or compare practices, during their first year with Jones Day.

Prior to joining Jones Day, Chris worked for the Arias Foundation for Peace and Human Progress in Costa Rica, where he focused on arms trade issues. He is fluent in Spanish and while serving as a summer associate at Jones Day, he worked actively on the Firm's pro bono initiative representing women and children seeking refuge in the United States from violence in Central America.
