Jim Thompson

SVP and General Counsel

Harkins has looked to Jim for his wise counsel since 1989, when we first engaged him in private practice. Before joining Harkins, Jim provided legal and counseling services to owners, contractors, subcontractors, and sureties relating to the avoidance and management of risks and claims on public and private construction projects in the U.S. and overseas.

In 2013 we were delighted Jim accepted the invitation to join our executive leadership on a full-time basis. In addition to working to minimize risk for our company — and therefore for our clients — and handling contractual, compliance, insurance, human resources, and other matters, Jim sits on the senior executive leadership panel, where his incisive mind is highly valued.
