Practice notes

James is a Partner in the Competition, EU and Trade practice group who specialises in international trade.

James advises on all aspects of international trade, including on contractual rights and obligations, export controls and trade sanctions, import tariffs, product classification (import and export), Rules of Origin, anti-dumping, countervailing duty and safeguard measures, WTO law and trade related due diligence in the context of M&A transactions. He has acted on numerous major international transactions requiring an assessment of the applicability of export control/sanctions as well as providing specific advice to companies in respect of compliance. James has significant experience of assisting clients to make voluntary disclosures in respect of infringements of export/import controls and sanctions laws and the use of duty suspension mechanisms, which have to date resulted in no further action being taken against a client or any of its directors.

James is described in the Legal 500 as being 'exceptional, invaluable'. In 2015 he was shortlisted in the World ECR Awards for Young Practitioner of the Year.

James also advises on a wide range of competition law matters, including on state aid and the application of competition law to commercial agreements.

In the light of Brexit, James has been assisting a number of global businesses in various industry sectors to assess the potential impact of Brexit on their trade related operations (e.g. the imposition of further customs formalities and trading within the WTO framework) and has advised them on potential mitigants to these and on their lobbying strategy
