The Hot 100 is an annual report which comprises 'the standout lawyers in the UK – the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers from in-house, private practice and the Bar.'
James has been a partner in the Manchester Corporate team for over 10 years and specialises in M&A and private equity transactions, acting for corporates, private equity houses and management teams. James’ highlights in 2017 include advising on the sale of Clarke Energy to US power group Kohler Inc, a transaction which The Lawyer has described as ' the deal of the year for the North West, a truly international deal.' He has also acted for Lloyds Development Capital and Beech Tree Private Equity on a number of transactions last year, as well as for Primary Capital in the primary buyout of manufacturing company Metamark.
