When Jim describes his practice, he uses the acronym “OPM” which stands for “other people's money.” Whether through lender financing, tax incentives, credits, grants or capital contributions, Jim assists his clients in accessing OPM to achieve their business goals.

Jim practices primarily in the areas of financial services, economic development and real estate. With over three decades of experience, Jim has an extensive background in economic incentives; commercial and industrial real estate; and commercial transactions, including sales, commercial paper and secured transactions under the Uniform Commercial Code. He is also well-versed in SBA lender representation (representing lenders in over 270 SBA loan closings); mortgage and asset-based lending; and financial services operations, compliance and liability.

One of Jim's most significant professional achievements was leading a team of lawyers who structured and implemented the economic development package for a $100 million public-private multi-use development in downtown Spartanburg, South Carolina.
