Jim Schober


Jim manages the firm's business transaction and restructuring practice, where he assists the firm's clients with a wide array of finance, reorganization, and corporate restructuring transactions. He appears regularly in federal bankruptcy court, where he represents creditors, corporate debtors, and other parties in connection with business reorganizations under chapter 11 and, occasionally, chapter 7. Jim's practice has benefited greatly from the diversity of his training. His fifteen-year legal career is divided almost evenly between large international firms, where he was involved in highly sophisticated bankruptcy acquisitions and reorganizations, and "boutique" firms catering to medium-sized, privately held Texas businesses.
