James is an arbitration specialist. He has more than 25 years’ experience of ad hoc, trade association, institutional and investment arbitrations as a solicitor in London and Paris, as a former Registrar of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), and as a case assessor for legal costs insurers and third party funders. His background as a lawyer is in international trade, commodities, shipping and insurance.

He trained at Withers in London and then spent four years in the firm’s Paris office. He was admitted as an avocat at the Paris bar (1994 – 2008). Returning to London, he spent more than 13 years at Holman Fenwick Willan in its Trade & Energy group. As Registrar and Deputy Director General of the LCIA in 2008 – 2012, he oversaw the administration of more than a thousand commercial arbitrations and assisted with a review of its Arbitration Rules. He subsequently spent two years at Thomas Miller Legal, assessing and managing a wide range of commercial and investment claims on behalf of insurers and funders. Returning to private practice in 2015, he spent a year in Stephenson Harwood’s International Arbitration group where he assisted on ICC and LCIA arbitrations, principally oil and gas disputes.

James is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. At LexisNexis, James works on the Lexis®PSL Arbitration module.

John is a paralegal in the Lexis®PSL Corporate Crime and PI & Clinical Negligence teams. Prior to joining Lexis Nexis, he was a Schuman Trainee at the European Parliament in Brussels, where he gained extensive experience of the inner workings of the EU legislative process within the Directorate General for Internal Policies. John drafted briefings on Parliamentary Committee meetings and worked on the implementation of the Commission’s Work Programme as well as advising on the legislative implications of Brexit. He also contributed to the drafting of the Code of Conduct for Commissioners.
Richard is a barrister with over 10 years’ experience in the civil courts in England and Wales. He qualified following pupillage at 13 King’s Bench Walk chambers, where he had a broad civil common law practice dealing primarily with personal injury, debt recovery and personal/corporate insolvency. In 2014 he moved to 42 Bedford Row chambers where his practice became more focused on landlord and tenant matters and commercial contract disputes.
 

Through extensive exposure to the courts on a nearly daily basis he has developed an in-depth understanding of the practical application of the CPR in day-to-day litigation, both in interim hearings and substantive trials. 

Michael is a barrister practising at Crown Office Chambers, principally on professional negligence, insurance, property damage and commercial matters. Recent notable instructions include one of the Lawyer’s Top 20 cases of 2019.
