James joined Littleton in October 2018 upon completing his pupillage. He has since built a practice across Chambers’ core areas of work, including employment, commercial, and sports law. He is happy to accept instructions in any of these areas.

Recent work has included:

  • Successfully defending a major retailer from allegations of discrimination and constructive unfair dismissal in a five-day hearing
  • Conducting an internal investigation into allegations of gross misconduct, including the operation of a competitive business, by an employee at a communications agency
  • Being led in drafting a defence on behalf of a client facing complex allegations of discrimination brought by a large number of claimants in a non-employment context
  • Advising an employee on the construction and enforceability of a complex commission payment plan

Prior to commencing pupillage, James spent a year working at the Court of Appeal as a judicial assistant to the former Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas, working on cases such as R(Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union and R v Alexander Blackman. Previously James also worked as a paralegal on international commercial arbitrations at a boutique litigation firm, Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP.

Before becoming a barrister, James lived in Japan for two years as a Daiwa scholar, funded by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, where he studied Japanese and worked as a journalist.
