Jim Thomas is the Top Choice of U.S. Presidents and their staffs for Negotiation Coaching and Consulting. Jim is also a world-renowned consultant to billion-dollar+ corporations and an undisputed master of high-performance negotiating. When Fortune 100 companies demand that their people learn negotiation skills from only the best, they unhesitatingly pick Jim. His presentations on negotiating have been enthusiastically received by tens of thousands in the United States and abroad.

Jim's negotiating projects include some of today's most newsworthy domestic and international issues. He served the United States in the successful Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Negotiations with the former Soviet Union and the GATT (now WTO) trade negotiations. In 1977, Jim wrote and presented a pre-negotiation briefing for a client that dramatically improved attendees' negotiating skills. He expanded this material into a workshop; and in 1982 offered it to the general public. Jim's original briefing has become on of the leading negotiation programs in the world, and the recipient of numerous awards for excellence.  

Negotiating has been the heart of Jim’s 30-year law practice. His experience includes mergers and acquisitions, domestic and international business transactions, arms control, the environment, trade and diplomacy, real estate, labor relations, and a host of other fields. Jim's clients range from Fortune 500 companies and federal, state, and local government agencies to small and mid-sized businesses, non-profit groups, and professional and trade associations.

Jim is the author of the best-selling business book, NEGOTIATE TO WIN and scores of articles about negotiating.  He is a frequent guest on television and radio, and a popular speaker and trainer for corporate, government, trade and professional groups.  He is a member of the Faculties of Pacific Coast Banking School and the Graduate School of Banking at LSU.  Jim is a graduate of the University of California at Los Angeles (magna cum laude) and the Georgetown University Law Center.
