SAN DIEGO (October 1, 2007) – Attorney Jerome A. Grossman, a partner in Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP’s San Diego office, has been appointed Chair of the Opinions Committee of the Business Law Section of the State Bar of California.
The purpose of the Opinions Committee is to review, and to help formulate, the Business Law Section’s public positions on third party legal opinions and to support and coordinate the work of the Section’s standing committees on significant opinion issues. As Chair, Grossman’s responsibility will be to interact with the Business Law Section’s Executive Committee and other standing committees to ensure all opinions reports and other publications of the Section concerning third-party legal opinions are consistent. He will also preside over meetings, help coordinate the work of the committee and keep projects moving.
Grossman is part of Luce Forward’s business/corporate practice group. He has been involved with the Opinions Committee since it was initially formed as a special task force, in 2000. During the past 25 years, Grossman has been heavily involved with delivering and negotiating legal opinions and has helped the firms he has worked for develop and refine their formal opinions for various transactions.
“It is a great honor for me to serve as Chair of the Opinions Committee,” Grossman said. “This committee plays a valuable role in making the negotiation process flow more smoothly, especially as giving and receiving opinions are integral to so many transactions in which attorneys are involved.”
In his practice, Grossman also specializes in Uniform Commercial Code secured transactions, real estate secured transactions and other financing transactions (including securitized financings).
