James E. Lyons

Obituary Condolences

March 10, 1951 - October 10, 2015 The partners, attorneys and staff of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP mourn the passing of our retired partner and friend, Jim Lyons. The former co-head of our West Coast Litigation practice, Jim played a key role in the development of Skadden's reputation for bet-the-company litigation. An exceptionally talented lawyer, Jim handled headline-making securities and corporate issues, directors' and officers' liability, international arbitration and other complex commercial disputes during his 34 years of practice. We remember Jim not only for his legal acumen, but also for his warmth, his Mark Twain-like wit and his great love for the firm. We extend our condolences to Jim's family, including his wife, Mary Jane, and his children, Sean and Caitlyn.
