James heads our property group and has over 16 years of experience across a broad range of commercial real estate transactions. 

“I advise on all aspects of commercial property law, working primarily for clients in the film & TV, interactive entertainment, betting & gaming and technology sectors.

I draw on my experience to tailor my advice to the legal and practical needs of my clients. I ensure that I take the time to listen carefully and understand their specialist commercial drivers – this allows me to cut through the noise to focus on the issues that really matter.

I aim to never approach a client with a problem that I haven’t already solved – whether it’s how to structure a multi-million-pound Studio Hire Agreement, how to draft a location contract for driving tanks over the Welsh countryside, or how a DXR start-up should negotiate lease terms with a tech-hub.

Clients most value my ability to provide a holistic view of all the issues they may encounter on a transaction, and then take the lead in implementing an effective solution.”
