jones day Jones Day LLP, an Ohio-based international law firm with more than 2,500 lawyers, appointed Patricia J. Villareal as the new Partner-in-Charge (PIC) to lead the firm’s Dallas office beginning in January 1, 2011. Villareal will replace George T. Manning, who has been the PIC since January 2008.
