​Bona Law Attorneys Recognized by Best Lawyers for 2022

August 23, 2021

Best Lawyers® recognizes Bona Law lawyers Steven Cernak and Jon Cieslak as top lawyers for 2022.

Steven Cernak received the 2022 Best Lawyers® designation for antitrust law for the third year in a row, recognizing his deep experience and the high esteem in which he is held by clients and fellow practitioners. The award is based entirely on peer reviews, using a rigorous methodology through a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services.

Steven is a partner in Bona Law’s Detroit, MI office. He advises clients on a broad array of competition and consumer protection matters, including compliance programs, joint efforts with competitors, pricing and distribution strategies, and merger reviews. He was in-house antitrust counsel at General Motors for over 20 years and spent another seven years at another law firm before joining Bona Law.

Jon Cieslak received the Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch designation, the second year in a row he has received the award. Jon was recognized for both commercial litigation and antitrust litigation. The One to Watch designation acknowledges outstanding professional excellence for attorneys who are earlier in their careers, using the same rigorous review methodology as the Best Lawyers® designation.

Jon is a partner in Bona Law’s La Jolla, CA office, where he represents clients in complex business litigation and white-collar criminal defense, focusing on antitrust and competition law claims, prosecutions, and investigations.
