“I’ve worked with Jim and Eric for many years.  Their work combines strategic vision with common sense and strong negotiation and communication skills.  For example, they helped resolve a lease dispute equitably and quickly, allowing the deal to move forward.  They’ve helped me with a broad range of business issues including turnaround situations and vendor negotiations, leases, employee disputes and litigation.  As a business person, I really value their advice for difficult situations.”

Jim is unique in his field in that he has big firm sophistication and experience while at the same time he acts with entrepreneurial creativity. He works with skill, efficiency, and is a solid attorney for venture capital transactions and workouts. Jim has worked with us on a variety of transactions, including initial and follow-on investments, restructurings and wind-downs. We have been pleased with the value he brings to Upfront and our portfolio companies and continuing our long relationship.”
