James is the head of Stephenson Harwood's banking team. His expertise lies in debt funded transactions with a focus on real estate finance and acquisition finance. James spends most of his time advising borrowers and lenders on a wide variety of real estate finance and acquisition finance transactions, usually with a cross-border element.  James' clients consist of funds, joint venture vehicles, corporates and banks and their deals are often highly structured, so James is regularly advising different parties in the capital stack on complex inter-creditor issues.

Tim is a mediator and barrister in international family law.  He has practised at QEB as a barrister since 1988 and as QC since 2008.

Tim is ranked in Band One of The Legal 500 and of Chambers UK Bar Directory for Matrimonial Finance.  The Legal 500 says: “ He is one of the sector’s biggest intellects and approaches each case from every angle with remarkable pace and agility ; Chambers Bar Directory says “ Completely wonderful: he’s very wise, he’s always beautifully prepared and he has immense gravitas. He’s very strategic in his thinking. When you go to conference with him, you know he will be ready to advise and he will have thought about it in the round ”.
