About Me

James Cai founded SAC Attorneys LLP after serving as in-house legal counsel for Yahoo! Inc.  His practice focuses on corporate law, intellectual property, real estate, and employment law.


 


Mr. Cai believes in relationship lawyering and has a client-driven practice. He practices law the old fashioned way – giving each client this full attention with prompt responses, thorough research and analysis, aggressive representation and careful attention to details, in both transactional and litigation matters.  As a result, most of his clients are repeat and long term clients, including individuals, small businesses, non-profit organizations and public companies.


 


Before founding Schein & Cai LLP, Mr. Cai served as in-house counsel for Yahoo! Inc. He also practiced law with Morrison & Foerster LLP and Gray Cary Ware & Freidenrich LLP (now known as DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary), two of the largest law firms in California.  Mr. Cai holds a Juris Doctor, Magna Cum Laude, from Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia, graduating in the top 5% of his class.


 


Mr. Cai is admitted to practice in California, United States District Court for the Northern District of California, United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. He also holds a real estate sales license from California Department of Real Estate.


 


Mr. Cai is committed to community services and is frequently invited as a guest speaker and commentator on current legal issues by local news media, non-profit organizations and chambers of commerce.

    I had the pleasure of knowing Jingming Cai, by working with him at his firm. He is a very knowledgeable Corporate/Business Law Attorney, and also focuses on Intellectual Property, Civil Litigation Management, Immigration, and related practice areas. This is a very rare combination of skillet, which makes him an extremely valuable attorney in Start-up world. His firm is one stop for all your business, corporate, IP, and immigration needs. His litigation practice is top notch and he has managed some amazing cases. He is very respected in Asian community and has helped several client win difficult L-1, EB-5 and H-1 cases. He understands the intricacies of the L-1 process and advises client on setting up new offices in US and then successfully filing for extensions and then green card. I fully endorse him and recommend him.
