"Jim and I worked closely as the outside advisers on an M&A deal involving sophisticated parties. Jim did an excellent job representing the clients’ interests every step of the way. He was incredibly attentive to the clients’ needs, ensuring they received the desired result in an efficient manner. Jim was very proactive during the process, ensuring the deal could come together on a tight timeframe. I look forward to working with Jim in the future, and would recommend him to any business owner that is looking for an attorney to help achieve their goals through application of legal 'rules of the road' to their ideas and processes.
