As Chair of the firm’s Corporate and Securities Group, Jim concentrates his practice on general corporate and securities matters. He has experience in a number of substantive areas, including corporate finance, public offerings and private placements, joint ventures, contract negotiations, and mergers and acquisitions. Jim counsels both domestic and international clients in a wide range of industries including real estate, insurance brokerage, manufacturing, and technology.

Jim’s work in the real estate industry has expanded throughout his career, and he has become trusted counsel to a number of real estate investment trusts, many of which have been his clients for close to 15 years. He initially assisted these clients with their securities reporting, joint venture relationships and entity acquisitions and dispositions. Over time, Jim’s representation of these clients has evolved to include more real estate-centric activities, and his practice has expanded to include issues of REIT compliance, property and portfolio acquisitions and dispositions, and leasing matters.
