As the Nomad team always says, this is the youngest industry with the most sub-verticals, and being a lawyer is one of them. You can, for example, start as a finance guy, get into real estate, then end up here – and Jim is a perfect example of it.

Jim outlines how his career path unfolded and what skills allowed him to end up where he is today,

“Learning how to talk to people and engage with people, whether it be your clients or people that you’d like to pursue as a client, that’s the skillset that’s probably allowed my career to flourish as it has.”

Nabeel asks Jim how he got involved in the data center space and technology specifically,

“It’s all about the opportunity because sometimes that’s what life does for you. And if you’ve got a window where you can pay attention to an opportunity, you can truly appreciate what it is. I had opportunities and have incrementally continued to migrate our practice exclusively to this space.”
