Jayne E. Juvan

Partner, Tucker Ellis LLP

+1 216.696.5677


Jayne Juvan is a high-energy business lawyer vitally involved in clients’ corporate dealings.

Enterprising by nature, Jayne likes to try new, cutting-edge approaches to get results. Focusing on corporate governance, risk oversight, regulatory compliance, and transactions, she counsels public and high-growth private companies, private equity funds, and venture capital funds from initial formation through all stages of the business life cycle.

Jayne frequently can be found in the boardroom with directors as they make highly impactful, potentially transformative, and confidential decisions. She is often tapped to assist corporate boards to maximize effectiveness and institute best practices. Given her experience serving as co-chair of the American Bar Association’s Task Force on Director Misconduct, she is also regularly called upon to advise corporate boards during their most challenging situations.

Whether making a decision to grow or divest corporate assets, clients in a variety of industries – including the heavily regulated health care industry – turn to Jayne for her advice and counsel. She relishes navigating complex issues that arise in transactions of all sizes and has been a key advisor on deals valued from approximately $5 million to more than $1 billion.

Jayne passionately stays abreast of emerging boardroom issues, macroeconomic and financial factors that impact global deal activity, and the potential influence of geopolitical events on corporate strategy. A frequent and sought-after writer and speaker featured in the Harvard Business Review and Forbes for her unique use of social media as an attorney, Jayne covers the daily developments in these areas on Twitter at

Jayne and her husband Dan, who are both black belts in Tae Kwon Do, met in martial arts and competed nationally together in forms and freestyle sparring. Originally from Northeast Ohio, they are proud to call Cleveland home and enjoy raising their young twin sons Alexander and Zachary in the area.
