Elizabeth Ames Jones

As a senior policy advisor, Jones will advise clients from a range of industry sectors on key policy issues, particularly those arising at the intersection of private industry and federal regulatory policy. Patton Boggs’ core practice areas are government relations and lobbying, administrative and regulatory, commercial and transactional, litigation and dispute resolution, intellectual property, and international law.

Prior to joining Patton Boggs, Jones served on the Railroad Commission of Texas, an elected position. During her tenure, she served as chairman of the commission twice. As Railroad Commission chairman, Jones oversaw a regulatory agency with statewide jurisdiction over the permitting of drilling for oil and natural gas, intrastate pipeline permitting and safety, rate making for investor-owned natural gas utilities, permitting of surface mining of coal, and the environmental protection of groundwater.

An advocate for the protection of coastal habitat, she also served on the state’s coastal land advisory board.

Her experience includes four years in the Texas Legislature, from 2001 to 2005, where she was a member of the House Appropriations Committee and chairman of the Sub-Committee on Budget and Oversight of the House Energy Resources Committee.  

She was the first woman elected to a leadership position in the House Republican Caucus, and received many awards recognizing her work ethic and leadership.

A native of San Antonio, Texas, Jones graduated in 1978 from the University of Texas at Austin.
