James has over 30 years of experience in IP. He's recognised as one of the UK's leading patent litigators, and is best known for his work in the technology and life sciences sectors.
Although the majority of James' work is in patent litigation across the telecoms, pharmaceuticals and life sciences sectors, he regularly advises on non-contentious cases with a high degree of technical complexity.
James has worked on numerous trade secrets claims and contractual disputes. He's also experienced in licensing and other transactional matters involving IP. Clients describe James as commercially-minded and easy to work with.
