Callum Giliker

Senior Corporate Solicitor

Get in touch

Callum is a senior corporate solicitor at Harper James, specialising in mergers and acquisitions and investments, as well as other corporate/commercial matters.

When asked what he thinks clients value most about working with him, Callum said:

Clients tell me they appreciate my approachability. Many individuals or businesses approaching solicitors have an almost superstitious expectation that lawyers will be difficult, or ‘cold’ in their professionalism. While professionalism is always key, there’s no need to be distant – especially since we’re working together with the client as a team.

Callum graduated from the University of Warwick in 2013, with a year studying at Universiteit Utrecht in the Netherlands. He qualified as a corporate solicitor specialising in mergers and acquisitions in 2018, before joining the Harper James team at the beginning of 2020.

Callum has worked on transactions on behalf of companies or shareholders involved in a variety of different sectors and industries, particularly media and technology and life sciences.

Having spent time living abroad, Callum is a keen traveller. He also pursues his interests in philosophy and rock climbing whenever he can.

Calum has also taken part in our Spotlight on a Solicitor series, sharing his journey into law and proudest career moments. Read the interview to hear about his life in law.


TESTIMONIALS

What our clients say

I have worked with Callum Giliker on quite a number of corporate fundraising transactions over the last few years and have always found Callum to take a calm, knowledgeable and productive lead, keeping things as simple as possible.
Matthew Dreaper CFO, Oxford Space Systems
Callum has dealt with all in a professional and efficient manner. He's attentive and efficient in all I have asked.
John Bell Managing Director, Unique Packaging Solutions
It was delightful working with Stephen and Callum on the fundraise. As an ex-investment banker, I’ve worked with many law firms and the legal process can be quite painful. We wanted to make sure our investors were protected and there were no delays with the raise. The fundraise was executed smoothly and Stephen and Callum were both very helpful. Callum was extremely bright. They both pointed out lots of things that we had missed.
Hana Salussolia Chief Operating Officer, Medisonal
The flexibility of the enterprise plan works perfectly for us as a growing start-up. It’s like having your own in-house counsel without spending a fortune like other firms charge. Working with Callum Giliker on this funding round was incredibly easy and straightforward. Callum understood all our needs without us even having to voice it.
Dr. Francesco Colacino Co-Founder and CEO, Rheality
Both Adam and Callum worked tirelessly with other advisors and principals to sensibly solve problems as they arose during the transaction and were integral to seeing the deal through to a successful completion.
Patrick Lynch Director, Castle Square Corporate Finance
Callum was very helpful, prompt and thorough with his approach. He made the process extremely seamless for us. It was a great experience overall.
Amin Amin CEO, Plumm
We engaged early with HJS on this acquisition and I felt the level of support and advice throughout was excellent. Callum was flexible in terms of attending meetings and his knowledge of the subject area was extensive and gave me full confidence in the work he was undertaking for us. He assisted in meetings with the target and helped both parties through the acquisition process.
Mike Green Financial Director, Eurotank
The service we received from Harper James Solicitors was very efficient and everything was handled in a professional and diligent way
Martyn Boaden Company Secretary, Viscgo Ltd
The support, advice and guidance from Harper James was absolutely vital. Shubhu, Callum and the team there were always on hand to deal with any issues that we needed help with as the deal progressed. This is an exciting new stage in the development of the business.
