Practice Areas

James is a partner, and specialises in resolving trust and probate disputes. James' work ranges from claims concerning the validity and effect of wills, claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, undue influence and equitable claims, to actions by or against trustees of landed estates and international trust disputes. He regularly acts for clients in mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. James is currently ranked band 1 for Private Wealth Disputes The South in Chambers High Net Worth Guide and band 4 for Charities UK-Wide in Chambers Guide.

James' best known case is Ilott v Mitson where he acted for the defendant charities, including in their successful appeal to the Supreme Court in 2016/17.

Recent reported cases include James v James [2018] EWHC 43 (Ch) and Habberfield v Habberfield [2018] EWHC 317 (Ch). These two decisions are regarded as illustrating the two different approaches to estoppel that currently prevail – quasi-contractual vs relief-based – and the Habberfield case was considered by the Court of Appeal for 2 days in May 2019, tackling a number of important questions about the scope of the court's powers when using estoppel remedies.
