James P. Flynn

Managing Director at Epstein Becker & Green, P.C.

Companies facing complicated disputes, especially over intellectual property or proprietary information, turn to Jim Flynn for creative solutions. Jim is known among clients and colleagues for his willingness to tackle unusual challenges and act quickly in time-sensitive matters. To help clients prevail in high-stakes trade secret and data theft cases, he applies novel arguments that stand up to scrutiny, even as the law continues to evolve.

Jim brings a distinct business sensibility to managing the risks clients face in dealing with their employees. He is committed to putting legal challenges into a broader perspective. Whether confronted with situations involving employee access to confidential information, employment policy enforcement, or commercial agreement disputes, his incisive advice helps employers achieve their business goals. In addition to litigation, he advises on policy development, staffing changes, and noncompete agreements, helping clients weigh their options and prepare for outcomes. In larger transactional matters, Jim asks the right questions to produce clear and unvarnished due diligence and third-party assessments. He frequently speaks and writes about employment law, copyrights and trademarks, confidentiality, trade secrets, evidence rules, trial practice, and attorney ethics.

As the Managing Director of the firm, Jim has played an instrumental role in the development and enhancement of Epstein Becker Green’s mission, vision, and values. Early in his tenure, the firm joined forces with Deloitte Legal to expand its ability to serve clients with global employment and workforce needs.
