Jim focuses primarily on communications and appellate litigation. He also has experience with products liability, regulated industries, insurance coverage disputes, insurance company liquidations, design and construction disputes, civil RICO and antitrust.

Jim has devoted the majority of his practice to communications-related litigation, and he has worked almost exclusively on communications matters since becoming a partner in 2001.
