His structuring and documentation of mortgage industry transactions was effective to shield Locke Lord’s institutional client groups he advised from the massive losses that others suffered in the industry meltdown that started in 2007.‎

He also counsels the world's largest nonprofit medical center in interpreting and applying its comprehensive restrictive covenants limiting use of medical center land to nonprofit purposes, and in other real estate matters.

Jamie’s real estate and finance law qualifications and experience earned him past positions on the boards of a nonprofit and a public company.
