Since joining Reed Smith, Jim has developed a diverse practice involving a broad range of commercial litigation matters. He has complemented this litigation experience with transactional and drafting work specific to construction industry projects. His experience at the firm has involved him in private and public commercial construction projects with subcontractors, general contractors, corporations and institutions, commercial contract disputes and securities related litigation. Representative cases in the construction sector have involved construction payment, defect and/or delay claims involving school buildings, power plants, steel mills, pharmaceutical plants, wastewater treatment facilities, courthouses and commercial office buildings.
