More about James

James is an Associate in HFW’s London office, specialising in complex commercial litigation, with a focus on fraud and insolvency related disputes. He has broad range of experience in the High Court and the Court of Appeal, including both trials and interlocutory relief.

James has worked on a wide range of commercial litigation matters throughout his career, with a particular emphasis on financial services disputes prior to joining HFW. His clients have included major domestic and international companies, individuals, insolvency practitioners, creditors and debtors, as well as acting for and against groups of claimants. He also has experience in off-shore jurisdictions, including the British Virgin Islands.

James is currently acting on a variety of commercial litigation matters ranging from High Court shareholder disputes, heavy-weight contentious insolvency litigation with an offshore element, to advising a shipping company in relation to a dispute arising out of an SPA.

James is qualified in both England and Wales, as well as South Africa.


The London office is the firm's largest, with over 250 lawyers.

It offers the full range of services that HFW provides globally, with partners from the London office working closely with all the other HFW offices, as well as in many jurisdictions around the world. HFW moved to its current premises in September 2008, having previously been in nearby Lloyds Avenue for almost 100 years.
