A diligent and pragmatic advocate with excellent client care.

James accepts instructions in all of Chambers’ areas of practice, regularly appearing in the Crown, magistrates’ and youth courts.

Prior to joining Chambers, James worked in a City firm where he was involved in Serious Fraud Office investigations relating to financial institutions and insider dealing. He also assisted in past business reviews of financial institutions, particularly looking at COBS compliance, and was involved in ‘skilled person’ reviews (under s.166 FSMA 2000) instigated by the Financial Conduct Authority into alleged mis-selling of interest rate hedging products by a major UK bank, and an investigation into mis-management of investment portfolios.

Since joining Chambers, James has undertaken advisory work for a US firm in respect of a significant Serious Fraud Office investigation.
