CPR President & CEO Allen Waxman interviews Jim Groton
September 13, 2021
CPR President & CEO Allen Waxman interviews Jim Groton, a retired partner of the law firm of Sutherland, Asbill & Brennan LLP (now Eversheds Sutherland), where he formerly led the Construction Practice Group and the Dispute Prevention and Resolution practice of that firm.
As a practicing lawyer during Atlanta’s building boom in the 1960s he began to specialize in construction matters, transitioning from trial lawyer to trouble shooter, to behind-the-scenes counselor, to problem solver, to pioneer in the application of techniques for preventing, controlling, de-escalating, and achieving the earliest possible resolution of disputes. He has had a remarkable record of success in helping to “keep the peace” on numerous construction projects and in other business relationships and transactions.
