  • Scott Leigh Glazier

    JIm and I initially met while representing opposing clients in an acquisition. The transaction was made complex due to the third party funding arrangement. During the negotiations and documentation of the transcations, Jim and I gained a mutual respect for each other's work and subsequently have referred work back and forth or sought each other's assistance with matters outside our State Bars. Jim has proved to be extremely knowledgable and helpful to me and my clients in both public company and venture capital transactions that I have discussed with him.
