James is a Senior Employee Incentives Solicitor at Harper James. He graduated from university in South Africa and completed national service in the army before returning to England. James qualified as a solicitor in 2015 and has worked in the employee share schemes and incentives space for almost 20 years.

James has also advised on the incentives’ aspects of investments and transactional matters.

I really enjoy working with entrepreneurial businesses and supporting them with clear, commercial and practical advice in the niche area of employee share schemes and incentives.

James enjoys working with ambitious start-ups across multiple sectors, and high-growth companies embarking on various funding rounds.
