Meet James

I joined Lawrence Stephens’ Banking team in March 2024, after qualifying as a Solicitor in September 2022 at a City of London law firm. Prior to this, I studied German and Politics at the University of Nottingham before completing the Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course at BPP University.

I have experience in advising lenders, developers, corporate borrowers and banks (both domestic and international) on all forms of banking transactions.

I have also been on secondment at a specialist investment manager with extensive expertise in real estate and I have worked on many development finance projects and bridge finance projects with experienced, mid-market developers in the residential, commercial and mixed use sectors. 

Outside of the office, I enjoy competing in all forms of sport, be it football, tennis or swimming. I also regularly take part in marathons and triathlons.
