James C. Grant is the national co-leader of the firm’s Litigation Team. He has tried 23 cases to a jury verdict or arbitration award and has handled more than 50 federal and state appeals. Some of the largest companies in America have relied on Jim to lead enterprise risk litigation, including complex trade secret cases, merger and acquisition disputes and class actions. He is a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers.
Over the past 25 years, Jim’s clients have included 16 Fortune 500 companies. He has served as litigation counsel for clients in a wide range of industries, including an international chemical manufacturer, a nationwide drug store chain and the world’s largest soft drink bottler, as well as companies in pharmaceuticals, financial services and other sectors. Jim handles litigation from its inception, but is often brought in as trial counsel or to appeal a case following an adverse verdict.
Jim understands that clients win when they achieve their business objectives. He therefore begins each engagement looking for a positive resolution that stops short of carrying a matter to trial. When matters cannot be resolved through negotiations, Jim is able to draw on the support of his team’s diverse litigation groups to bring extensive experience to every type of dispute.
