James is the head of the Property group, with over 15 years of experience as real estate lawyer.

“I advise on all aspects of commercial property law, primarily working for clients in the Film and TV and Technology sectors. The work is highly specialised and tailored very closely to the legal and practical needs of clients working in these industries.

My focus is always to listen and understand the commercial drivers for a client, and then to take the lead and cut through the noise. I aim to never approach a client with a problem that I haven’t already solved – whether it’s how to approach a studio lease for filming highly confidential props, how to structure a location contract for driving tanks over the Welsh countryside, or how an AR start-up should negotiate lease terms with a tech-hub. I help clients focus on all the issues (even the ones they didn’t see) and then quickly guide the way through to the most effective solution.”
