Raley’s announced the promotion of Brian Lim to associate general counsel. The veteran corporate counsel, who joined the company in 2014, spent the past five years advising Raley’s on employment matters and contracts. In his new and expanded role, Lim will provide strategic counsel and support on legal matters such as HIPAA compliance, regulatory permits, contract disputes and employment law.
“Brian has time and again proven himself with his ability to understand and navigate complex situations and provide wise counsel,” said Helen Singmaster, Raley’s vice president of general counsel. “He is the definition of a team player and not only a valued member of the legal department but of the entire Raley’s organization.”
Since taking up employment at Raley's, Lim recently completed the rigorous Food Industry Management program at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business. He was the first lawyer to be admitted into this elite program in its 61-year history.
An experienced lawyer with more than 10 years of practice, Lim started his career as a law clerk for the U.S. Department of Justice before working as a law attorney at Downey Brand LLP, Sacramento. After a move to Shaw Valenza LLP, Lim joined Raley’s in the role of associate corporate counsel. He was promoted to senior corporate counsel in 2016.
Lim earned a Bachelor of Science degree in environmental policy analysis and planning from the University of California-Davis, as well as a J.D. from the University of California Davis School of Law.
