Snell & Wilmer Partner Cary Jones Returns to Salt Lake City Office


SALT LAKE CITY (October 10, 2023) – Snell & Wilmer is pleased to announce that Cary D. Jones has relocated from the Los Angeles office to the Salt Lake City office. 

“The Salt Lake office of Snell & Wilmer is thrilled to have Cary return to full time practice here in our newly remodeled offices,” said Mark Morris, managing partner of the Salt Lake City office. “Cary’s seasoned experience and perspectives, now just down the hall again, will add tremendously to our already deep benches in real estate and business transaction practices.”

Cary Jones has practiced for over 30 years in all aspects of sophisticated national real estate transactions such as mixed use, transit, hotel, and historic properties; ski resorts, shopping centers and office developments and joint ventures as well as zoning and land use, real estate financing, and construction. 

Jones is a respected leader in both the California and Utah legal communities. He has been ranked by Super Lawyers for multiple years, in both regions. He was recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal as a Top 100 Lawyer and as a Real Estate Visionary by the Los Angeles County Commercial Real Estate Magazine. Jones was part of the group of attorneys that led the opening of the firm’s Salt Lake office in 1991. He then moved to Los Angeles in 2009 to lead the opening of Snell & Wilmer’s Los Angeles office, where he served as managing partner from its opening through January 2023. He also served as a board member on the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce from 2009 to 2022. Jones has now relocated back to the Salt Lake City office, where he will continue to serve clients in real estate services.

Following its opening in early 1991, the Salt Lake City office has grown from a small cadre of transactional attorneys into a full-service practice that serves Utah’s rapidly growing business community. Today, more than 55 lawyers comprise our Salt Lake City office, making it one of the largest law offices in Utah. Our attorneys serve clients of all types, including Fortune 500 companies, publicly traded corporations, emerging businesses, and individual entrepreneurs.
