GLOBAL R&D CONTRACTING | PRIVACY ADVISOR | ATTORNEY
Global R&D Contracting, Privacy, and Collaboration
Welcome to my website! Does your organization need contracting or privacy expertise? Do you need expertise in global collaborations? Need an experienced contract negotiator and leader who has negotiated globally a couple thousand contracts? If so, you have come to the right place! 20+ years of working in university research administration, government, and law will be used to foster your success.
Currently an eDiscovery Attorney in Washington, D.C. - focusing primarily on privacy and antitrust matters - I also serve as an Adjunct Associate Professor in the CUNY M.S. in Research Administration and Compliance Program. During the past two years I have added privacy to my portfolio. I hold the European CPP / EU - DPO designation, awarded by Privasee AB and accredited by the City of Glasgow College. Five months of privacy experience (including a large company data breach, PII, FCRA, Privacy Shield, copyright infringement, and Apple / Google Play apps & COPPA) accompanies the CPP. My broad perspective is critical for privacy protection.
I am active in the leadership of the ABA Science & Technology Law Section, the ABA House of Delegates, and the State Bar of Wisconsin. I am barred in Wisconsin and before the U.S. Supreme Court. A graduate of the University of Dayton School of Law, I hold graduate degrees in international affairs and urban administration.
You expect a collaboration. You will get that. Want to learn more? Contact me today for an initial discussion.
Contract Drafting, Review, Negotiation, Management
Whether your contract needs are great or small, or your contracts are complicated or simple, I will get your contracts to "Yes." My expertise spans a wide range of contracts: U.S. Government (including FAR and DFAR clauses), industry, non - profit, and international agreements. I find reasons to say yes, not no. Contact me to find out how I can assist your organization.

What Colleagues and Clients Have to Say
I had the honour of teaching Jim in 2019. The subject matter was GDPR (academically accredited by City of Glasgow College). Jim is engaging, honest and humble. He never failed to meet the deadlines for any deliverable within the syllabus and never missed a session. His interest in the subject matter went way beyond legal.
With what he has learnt, he understands what the concept of Data Protection by Design by Default really means in practice. The Certified Privacy Practitioner training for the Data Protection Officer certification has a lot of practical hands - on with implementation. This, coupled with his extensive background in legal and teaching, gives him a blend of knowledge and beliefs which is unique. It will be interesting to see where he goes with this.

"I was a NIH Scientific Review Officer for 27 years and Chief of the AIDS Research Review Branch in the NIAID Scientific Review Program, and retired in August, 2019. I was responsible for the full, impartial scientific, technical and administrative peer review of grant applications in all areas of basic through clinical research on HIV / AIDS and associated conditions. I also advised applicants and reviewers on NIH / NIAID policies for developing and reviewing applications. Successful applicants received multi-million dollar awards to develop, test and select HIV prevention strategies, therapeutics, and vaccines.
I have known Jim Casey for 15 years, all in connection with his service on expert NIH/NIAID review panels that evaluated the merits of large international HIV / AIDS grant applications. Jim’s deep knowledge of research administration and the effective management of complex international projects greatly strengthened the expertise of the review panels on which he served. And, his evaluations were critical in the identification of the most meritorious applications.
In addition, Jim worked with me, and other NIAID staff, on a grantsmanship workshop during the 2014 iCOMOS Conference in Minneapolis. The workshop was attended by academic, non-profit and business researchers and administrators - all of whom benefited greatly from Mr. Casey’s extensive training and experience in national and international research administration."

"Jim Casey knows what he's talking about- He got our university's Sponsored Research Office pointed in the right direction for compliance and global research infrastructure."

TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER CENTRAL WEBINARS
Here are links to presentations I gave (either solo or with a colleague) for Technology Transfer Central:
“I worked with Jim Casey to establish a collaborative relationship between the research institute where I work and the public university where Jim worked at the time. This led to an arrangement for establishing a joint-PhD program in physics at the university with adjoint faculty from the research institute.
We developed several novel and mutually agreeable terms and conditions for establishing graduate advisors, conducting joint research, submitting peer-reviewed journal articles, handling arising intellectual property, employing paid student interns, and coordinating teaching assignments.”
