James is a litigator specialising in commercial property matters.

James is experienced in a range of commercial and civil disputes, and specialises in advising commercial property landlords and tenants.
James joined Napthens from the Lancaster branch of Simpson Millar in 2019, having qualified as a Solicitor at BSG Solicitors in Preston.
