Jim is an experienced civil litigator, with his practice concentrating in Employment Law and Labor Relations.   For over twenty years he has practiced before the federal and state trial and appellate courts in New York and New Jersey, as well as administrative agencies and industry arbitration associations, such as AAA, FINRA, and the NLRB.  

Jim has successfully defended his clients on a wide-variety of employment related matters, including claims for sexual harassment and hostile work-environment; discriminatory and retaliatory discharge based on race, disability, gender, pregnancy, and age.  He has also defended his clients against emergent relief applications to enforce non-compete and restrictive covenant agreements, including claims for the misappropriation of confidential information.

In addition to his Labor and Employment practice, Jim also acts as an “outside general counsel” to the firm’s clients in areas such as: commercial litigation; negotiating and drafting licensing agreements; reviewing commercial leases; advising on how to do business with bankrupt vendors and suppliers; and on protecting and defending intellectual property rights.
