"James & Co. Jewelers engaged Hearken to advise on the adjudication of a complex specialty property claim that required expertise in commercial real estate leases and insurance.

Blaine’s unwavering dedication and repeated record of success make Hearken Advisors James & Co.’s go-to business management consultant and most trusted advisor."
