Richard James has been listed, for the fourth consecutive occasion in the 2022 edition of the Legal 500 for his expertise in the technology sector and for advising on corporate restructurings and merger and acquisition transactions.
The Legal 500 is the leading national directory for ‘go to’ legal expertise.
Richard, is a managing partner at Broomhead & Saul and also a partner at our associated commercial law practice: Solicitors Title LLP.
Another of Richard James’ core practice areas that is acknowledged in this directory involves the exploitation of intellectual property (IP), especially through franchising.
Richard has a well deserved reputation for affable approachability. One of Legal 500’s many independently researched testimonials had this to say: ‘Richard James’ communication is exemplary – he is clearly a technically skilled solicitor but following analysis of my case, his explanation left me with a complete understanding of the options available to me.’
Richard’s technology sector clients operate in both the development and creative fields including the automotive sector where he has advised a global supplier of fluid transfer systems; a leading ad-operations and ad-server group working in online and mobile advertising and a rapidly expanding provider of interactive simulation systems; the latter using virtual reality adopted from the gaming industry for commercial applications including training and retail fit-out using 3D mapping.
Richard’s work in IP generally continues to grow as does his involvement in the commercial exploitation of IP rights and assets and we intend to continue to build our corporate offering with the expansion of our team this year.
Complementing Solicitors Title ’s core technology work, its healthcare and retail services have been particularly active, as businesses look to harness the opportunities presented by online platforms or more innovative delivery models, that Richard’s team is well placed to serve.
