James is a final seat trainee in the Disputes Resolution Department.
I am a boxing enthusiast who enjoys watching great boxing bouts with friends whenever I get the chance. While I wouldn't class myself as a "foodie", I do enjoy being in good company whilst enjoying equally good food at one of London's many restaurants. Another one of my more stressful hobbies is following the trials and tribulations of my beloved Arsenal FC, who will hopefully end our Champions League exodus this year. Aside from watching football I also like to play football and am currently captain of our firm's team.
I joined Travers Smith because of the sociable and collaborative culture combined with the opportunity to work alongside some of the best legal minds in the City. Through sharing an office with a partner, senior associate and associate I have been given a higher level of insight into client work.
Life at Travers Smith has been engaging and intellectually stimulating. The tasks I have worked on have varied from working on fast-paced corporation transactions to producing detailed research notes on complex points of law. No two days are the same and there are constantly new things to learn.
