James is a first seat trainee solicitor in the Private Equity & Financial Sponsors Group.
Prior to joining Travers Smith I attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and spent 10 years in the British Army as a Commissioned Officer. This career was challenging and rewarding in many ways and gave me additional opportunity to pursue passions for travel, skiing and sailing. I also enjoy property renovation and used GDL and LPC summers to create quite a mess at home.
I applied to Travers Smith because of the high quality of the firm's training and its passionate investment in its people. The room sharing system provides unrivalled exposure to distinguished work at all levels of the firm. I am very excited to be training here!
