CCHA Law has had the privilege of advising institutions of higher education throughout Indiana and across the country on a variety of matters for the past ten years and with the addition and leadership of Nussbaum, commits to continue to grow the new Higher Education Practice Group under James’ leadership.

Nussbaum has spent his entire career in higher education, serving as Associate General Counsel at Indiana University, a public research institution with 90,000 students and 40,000 employees across nine campuses. At IU, he conducted investigations and provided legal advice on a wide variety of matters including athletics, Title IX, name, image, and likeness, potential major NCAA infractions cases, student and faculty affairs, human resources, and employment discrimination, and negotiated real estate and other business transactions.

Nussbaum’s vast experience in higher education ideally situates him to formalize and lead CCHA Law’s higher education practice and position it for future growth and expansion.

“James is a wonderful addition to the firm,” said CCHA Law Managing Partner Alex Pinegar. “The fact that he served such a vital role at Indiana University really speaks to his capabilities and the ways in which he will be able to assist the clients we serve and lead our higher education group.”

“I look forward to working alongside such esteemed and respected attorneys,” said Nussbaum. "CCHA Law is in a pattern of growth, and the creation of a higher education practice group was a natural fit given their established sports law and school law practices. I am excited to be a part of the team.”

James and his wife Emily enjoy spending time and traveling with their two daughters, Hannah and Ellie.
