With over 30 years of experience prosecuting, the last twenty almost exclusively in the field of confiscation and asset recovery, James is recognised by the Court of Appeal as being an expert in the latter area. He has co-authored the 2013 and 2017 editions of the seminal work, Millington and Sutherland-Williams on the Proceeds of Crime, and also drafted (and trained and lectured the judiciary on) the Eastern Caribbean Bench Book on confiscation. He has acted on behalf of numerous foreign governments to assist in the retention and realisation of assets to satisfy overseas confiscation orders. Ancillary areas of expertise are cash seizures, enforcement of confiscation orders, judicial review / High Court proceedings and the handling of appeals. He also prosecutes regulatory offences on behalf of local authorities, with a particular emphasis on “rogue traders”. He is regularly instructed on Level 4 cases by the Proceeds of Crime Unit of the Crown Prosecution Service and is a Grade "A" prosecutor for the Serious Fraud Office. James is presently cross-qualifying to become admitted to the Australian legal profession.
