I am Jim Neath. I assist corporate legal departments and law firms with strategic planning for litigation readiness, investigations, and related discovery processes for responding to complex matters such as multi-party high-stakes lawsuits.
I managed complex corporate litigation and investigations for more than three decades, including 25 years as a senior legal executive for BP, where I led the company’s global litigation portfolio, including as associate general counsel where I led BP’s response to the Deepwater Horizon Gulf Oil Spill. At BP, my role included spearheading a variety of multidisciplinary strategies in response to some of the nation’s most significant corporate legal crises, investigations and transactions. I also developed and implemented state-of-the-art internal corporate discovery capabilities, policies and programs and built innovative internal processes to streamline law department operations.
I have a passion for bringing corporate legal departments and their law firms together to transform the way legal problems are solved. Morae is uniquely positioned to bring clarity and insight to complex, disparate data. Morae helps to make these innovative solutions possible.
