Years In Practice

 A trial lawyer, Jim Maloney began his career in 1975 by trying  personal injury and products cases for the Southern Pacific Railroad Co., the Texas Farm Bureau Insurance Companies, Bridgestone/Firestone and the Ford Motor Company.

Beginning with T. Boone Pickens and Mesa Petroleum Company in the early 1980’s, he  has represented clients in many uninvited or hostile acquisition efforts involving publicly-traded companies. More recently, he has frequently been called upon to advise and to represent special committees in connection with majority/minority transactions and interested party transactions and he routinely defends individual, derivative and class action claims against business institutions and their directors related to public and private securities transactions. He continues to both prosecute and defend against hostile acquisition attempts and represents clients before the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Federal Trade Commission.

In addition, Jim has successfully tried a wide array of complex commercial disputes in a wide variety of industries, including matters related to contracts, taxation, estates, trusts, healthcare, antitrust, ERISA, non-competition agreements, tortious interference claims, employment-related issues, trademarks and trade secret disputes, and executive compensation.

In his thirty years of practice, Jim has tried well over 100 cases to jury and bench verdicts across the Nation.  He has disposed of hundreds more by motion or sheer force of will.
