James is a Partner, Chairman and Head of Litigation.
With over 25 years of experience in practice, James has undertaken litigation across a variety of disciplines and particularly specialises in commercial litigation, ranging from debt recovery to complex multi-party disputes and has significant experience in acting on property litigation arising from both commercial and residential property.
James is a member of the Property Litigation Association and has handled a wide range of disputes relating to property for individuals as well as companies of all sizes.
James is described in the Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession as “a tenacious litigator who can weigh up the strengths and weaknesses of any case. He is also calm under fire and his tactical thinking is astute”.
“When I initially came to see James I was in a state of shock and confusion. Although I had been using a firm to represent me I didn’t really understand the process that I was about to go through. To be honest I don’t think that many people who aren’t directly involved would be expected to understand the complex and varied nuances of High Court Litigation. From the moment I entered the Torbay offices of Kitsons I knew that I had arrived at the right practice for me.
At no time in the next two years did I question or lose faith in the fact that everyone at Kitsons was doing their level best to try and contain the opposition and make sense of the situation.
I felt that you all worked as one and went that extra mile to ensure that everything possible was being carried out to the best standards possible.
We were very reassured to have you on our side, once again thank you all.”
