Jim Perkins

Attorney at Law

Santa Monica
Licensed in
University of Iowa
I am a seasoned business transactional attorney with decades of experience representing the world's largest financial institutions in complex capital markets transactions. I also represent smaller and even micro businesses in getting their corporate structure right from the start and preparing for the big exit day by observing corporate formalities from the beginning.

When not lawyering, I hike the backcountry in the Sierras or play bridge in Regional or National ACBL tournaments.
