James is an internationally recognised expert in the field of intellectual property, an area in which he has specialised for over 25 years.

He has a science degree from Cambridge University and is one of the few IP specialists to have qualified as a solicitor-advocate, giving him full rights of audience in the higher courts. He is also one of a limited number of lawyers with the requisite experience to supervise search and seize orders.

James has gained an enviable reputation as a fierce practitioner in IP disputes, having conducted cases all the way to the Supreme Court, as well as being praised for his skills in drafting and negotiating IP contracts. Independent commentators have described him as "widely-admired" (Legal 500) and as having a "stunning reputation" acting "for high-profile clients on a national and international scale" being "instructed directly by organisations who require the very highest levels of expertise" (Chambers Directory). His views have also been sought on national television and radio, as well as being quoted in the national and international press such as the FT and the South China Morning Post.

Much of James' work involves an international element. Regularly attending and speaking at international conferences, James has built up a wide network of international contacts to assist in this area.

James sits on the Law Society Intellectual Property Law Committee and the advisory panel of the Leeds City Region China Business Club.

Before establishing his own practice in 2006, James was a partner and head of IP in the leading international legal practice, Pinsent Masons. You can find out more details of James' career and his experience in his CV.
