Douglas James

Call 2015

Douglas’s practice spans construction, insurance, professional liability and property damage – including heavy international arbitrations and litigation, adjudications and ADR.

Douglas prides himself on rolling his sleeves up quickly (as sole counsel or one of a team), providing clear and practical advice, and delivering forceful advocacy.

Douglas is an accredited mediator and trained adjudicator. He can take Public Access cases where appropriate.

Douglas read History at UCL and came top of his year. He went on to write a PhD in Medical History. After turning to law, Douglas gained a Distinction in the GDL and was graded Outstanding in Bar finals; he had Hardwicke, Eastham, Lord Bowen and Lord Denning scholarships from Lincoln’s Inn.

Outside the office Douglas is a rugby referee and a church bell-ringer.
