Graydon Welcomes | James D. Ludwig
Graydon is pleased to welcome Jim Ludwig to Graydon’s Corporate Counsel Practice Group. He serves as general counsel for many small closely held businesses with an additional focus on real estate and construction. Jim provides the necessary legal support to his clients in all stages of the business cycle, from formation to dissolution and everything in between. At formation, Jim counsels his client regarding the appropriate corporate structure and then customizes the applicable corporate documents to fit the client’s specific governing needs of its business. By way of example, Jim will utilize his skills as a contract lawyer to manage the relationships with landlords, tenants, contractors, customers, and the like through the negotiation and enforcement of the contracts which govern those relationships.
When a business looks to sell its assets or interests, or acquire the assets or interests of others, Jim can utilize his merger and acquisition experience to negotiate, review and draft the necessary transfer documents. Finally, if a dispute arises, Jim will assist his clients in resolving that dispute by whatever means necessary. Jim successfully navigated a small Ohio contractor through an OSHA investigation and complaint with the US Department of Labor, a corresponding safety investigation and hearing with the Ohio Industrial Commission, and a wrongful death lawsuit in Warren County, Ohio.
Jim enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife Mina and their daughters Sabrina and Safia. They love to travel together, having gone as far east as Japan and as far west as Hawaii. Having grown up in New Jersey with a Mom whose maiden name is Dimaggio, Jim’s favorite food to eat and therefore favorite place to travel is Italy. When not hanging with his family, Jim loves hanging with his friends whether it be at the local brewery, a sporting event, or a music festival. He’s also an avid fitness buff, and has participated in multiple adventure style challenges such as Tough Mudder.
