Jones Waldo, one of Utah’s most enduring and prestigious law firms, has elected Kathleen McDonald as its newest shareholder. The firm also elected four new members to its board of directors including Paul M. Harman, Bruce E. Babcock, Timothy B. Anderson and Lewis M. Francis.


McDonald, who has been with Jones Waldo since 2006, is actively engaged in both the firm and the community. She was recently elected as the co-chair of the Jones Waldo Women Lawyers Group and she is involved with Tracy Aviary, the Bennion Center and Women Lawyers of Utah. Her primary focus is litigation and has experience in environmental law, construction, appeals, arbitration and mediation, eminent domain, insurance/tort and legal ethics and professional responsibility.

The firm also elected four new members to its board of directors. Paul M. Harman was voted chairman and Bruce E. Babcock was elected senior vice president. Timothy B. Anderson, the managing partner of Jones Waldo’s St. George Office, and Lewis M. Francis were elected members.

“We congratulate the new members of our board of directors and are confident their insight and leadership will greatly benefit the firm,” said Keven Rowe, who was elected to a ninth term as president. “We also thank those departing board members who have served the firm with dedication and commitment.”

Two long-time board members stepped down from service. Glen Watkins, who had served for 13 years as chairman of the board and Susan Peterson, a 12-year veteran as the board’s vice president. Both Jones Waldo senior shareholders are still active at the firm and look forward to focusing on their practices.
