James Asali in Law360 Pulse article

On February 16, 2024, Law360 Pulse published an article profiling the newest addition to Chamberlain Hrdlicka’s Philadelphia office, James Asali, who joins as senior counsel. Asali told Law360 Pulse during an interview that he was ready to take on a national platform and build a practice after spending the last three years as a legal and policy consultant for Ranpak, a sustainable packaging manufacturer.

"I had an opportunity to expand my legal role beyond public advocacy for sustainable packaging solutions," Asali said. "I started talking to firms inmid-2023, and I found Chamberlain in September. I like the people, the breadth of practices and the freedom I have to build my practice. It also had the right geographic reach and size."

Asali has nearly 30 years of transactional experience at law firms and in-house counsel and has a vast background in advising clients on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, employment contracts and more.

"I've always been a deal guy," Asali told Law360. "As a practitioner, I've stayed focused on the transactional side because I like putting together the pieces of the puzzle that is the deal."

Asali is also the president and CEO of Pack Green Coalition, a nonprofit organization that educates and advocates for replacing unnecessary plastic in packaging supply chains with sustainable alternatives.
