Prior to joining Osborne Clarke in 2019, James has been a tax adviser at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner and elsewhere having qualified as a solicitor in 2011. James’ experience covers the full range of corporate tax work ranging from small to mid-market UK M&A to complex cross-border transactions and structuring. Prior to joining RiskPoint, James, alongside advising other insurers in the market, worked closely with the M&A underwriting team as trusted counsel on a wide range of W&I placements.
James is based in our London office but will be part of our global underwriting team.
“We are delighted to add James’ tax experience to the team. James is already well-versed in the world of W&I from private practice and will add huge value to our current underwriting proposition. James will work across the general M&A team and also closely with our existing tax specialists Kevin Tighe in the USA and Julia Hübner in Germany as we continue to grow and scale our global tax and contingent risk offering.”
