Jim sees the role of a good business lawyer as similar to that of a coach. As a student-athlete in Springfield, MA, a college athlete at Georgetown University, and later a youth sports coach in Springfield and Longmeadow, he learned that a good coach is an advisor, a motivator, and a problem solver.
As a lawyer, he works to understand his clients’ culture and their concerns so that he can provide sound counsel based on what serves their goals and objectives and is in the best interests of their businesses. He analyzes transactions and litigation from a business perspective, creating innovative and efficient solutions.
Jim is recognized as a leading automotive franchise attorney throughout New England and has successfully handled the purchase and sale of numerous car dealerships and related real estate, franchise negotiations, floor plan and real estate financing and all types of litigation arising from the operation of a dealership.
