Practice notes

James is a partner in our EU and competition practice with broad EU experience.

His work spans a wide range of EU law from WEEE environmental advice, export control, and EC procurement obligations through state aid, merger and competition work to free-movement, CE-marking and other regulatory requirements. He is a core member of Eversheds procurement cross-departmental team.

James covers contentious as well as non-contentious matters.

He has used EU arguments to challenge and change EU directives and UK statutory instruments. He has appeared before the competition authorities at UK and EU level. He has also litigated EU obligations and procurement disputes in London and, often through judicial review, taken EU issues to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.

James is acknowledged in Legal 500, lectures widely and has published articles in a range of publications.
