James accepts instructions in all areas of civil law, with a particular emphasis on personal injury litigation involving allegations of dishonesty.

His personal injury work encompasses RTA claims, public and employers’ liability actions (including industrial disease, stress at work and harassment cases), and occupiers’ liability claims. James is regularly instructed on behalf of several national insurers in suspected fraudulent road traffic accidents (whether staged, phantom passenger or LVI), fraudulent employers and public liability claims, and in credit hire litigation. A growing area of his practice concerns fraud rings and costs recovery against solicitors, ATE providers and other non-parties.

James appears on behalf of both Claimants and Defendants, both on and off circuit, and is happy to consider Claimant work on a CFA basis. He is regularly instructed in Multi Track litigation and has experience of High Court work.

James also has experience of CICA and CRU appeals and has been instructed at several Coroner’s Inquests.

Notable Cases

What the directories say

James has a real eye for detail and approaches each case with great vigour. He always impresses with his grasp and knowledge of each matter I have instructed him on, but in addition to being a detail person, James also knows how to cut through a case to get to the core issues giving advice that is both technical and practical.
