Summary Bio

Jim Lopes, '74, is a director with Howard Rice Nemerovski Canady Falk & Rabkin and chair of its bankruptcy & reorganization group. From 1990 to 1992, he served as managing director of that San Francisco law firm. Lopes has represented a diverse array of clients, including Pacific Gas & Electric Company in its Chapter 11 case. Legal observers credit his work with saving the giant utility billions of dollars and allowing it to resurface as a robust energy giant. Prior to joining Howard Rice in 1982, Mr. Lopes was a partner in the San Francisco bankruptcy boutique, Gordon, Peitzman & Lopes, from 1978-81 and was with Gendel, Raskoff, Shapiro & Quittner, Los Angeles, from 1975-78.
