Public law – In all areas of State and federal administrative and constitutional law, James advises and appears for and against Ministers and other public officers on judicial review of administrative action, with a particular focus on jurisdictional error and public law remedies. He also maintains a strong advisory practice on matters of statutory construction.
Commercial Law – James has a diverse practice spanning commercial disputes, consumer law, property, equity, securities, external administration, insolvency and taxation. He acts for and advises regulatory bodies, corporations, small businesses and individuals in relation to both complex and smaller scale matters, where appropriate striving for outcomes that are as commercial as they are legally sustainable.
