Jim Higham

Jim brings over 25 years of legal and business experience to his role at Outside GC, including as a three-time general counsel and seasoned executive in the areas of business development and new market entry. Jim works with both large, established organizations and small, entrepreneurial companies and regularly handles a broad range of legal matters, including joint ventures & complex strategic partnerships involving foreign partners; commercial agreements; employment matters; operational and compliance issues; marketing & sales; intellectual property issues and licensing; and corporate governance.

Born in Hyderabad, India and raised in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Iran, Turkey, South Africa and England, Jim is fascinated by all things international including travel.  Jim claims he has yet to meet an exotic local food that he will not eat; though does admit that he did not go back for seconds on a few occasions.  Jim’s other outside interests are somewhat less brave and include golfing, spending time with his family and reading mysteries and thrillers, albeit preferably set overseas.
