Jim Durham Joins Ropes & Gray

Jim_durham_larry_bodineMy longtime friend and colleague Jim Durham has surprised many of us by going in-house at the Ropes & Gray, one of Boston's oldest and largest law firms with 500+ attorneys.

Why did he do it? "After 8 years of working with hundreds of firms (and staying in 100's of hotels), it is a chance for me to work closer to home," Jim said.  "Most importantly, though, it is a chance for me to work with some of the finest lawyers in the world at an amazing law firm. The potential merger of Ropes with the premier New York-based Intellectual Property firm of Fish & Neave makes it even more exciting. The combination would will create a firm of approximately 700 lawyers."

Jim broke the news on the LawMarketing Listserv and in the Professional Marketing Newsletter (see http://www.lawmarketing.com/newsletter/November22,2004newsletter.html#articleseven)

Jim's fascinating career started as a practicing lawyer, then the first Marketing Director at Mintz Levin in Boston, then to being an all-star marketing trainer, to selling sponsorships for Major League Baseball, and back to consulting. At Ropes & Gray he'll head up a marketing team of 13 people.  You can reach Jim at 617.951.7975 and jdurham@ropesgray.com.
