Jeff Sarles divides his dispute resolution practice between appellate and international arbitration work, and also handles a variety of other litigation matters. He joined Mayer Brown in 1994.

In appellate matters, Jeff has briefed and argued numerous appeals in the federal and state courts, involving such issues as patent infringement, consumer class actions, arbitration, antitrust, employment discrimination, ERISA, securities fraud, telecommunications, and bankruptcy. He is included in the 2013 edition of Best Lawyers in America and the 2013 edition of Super Lawyers in the field of Appellate Law.

Jeff has represented companies in commercial arbitrations before such leading bodies as the AAA, ICC, CPR, and LCIA, as well as under the UNCITRAL Rules. His numerous domestic and international arbitrations have involved such issues as information technology, manufacturer-supplier-distributor disputes, post-closing purchase price adjustments, and product recall indemnification. He has practiced before courts of first instance and appellate courts in cases involving arbitrability, arbitral jurisdiction, and judicial review of arbitration awards. Jeff also has represented investors and governments in investor-state arbitrations and annulment proceedings before the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes and in appellate litigation involving the scope of arbitral jurisdiction over foreign governments.

As part of an active litigation practice, Jeff has briefed and argued dispositive motions in federal and state trial courts throughout the country, resulting in numerous cases being dismissed on the pleadings or on summary judgment. He also has substantial experience in briefing class certification, discovery, and evidentiary issues.
