James is a solicitor specialised in company & commercial law and is also our Managing Partner here at Meade King.

He handles a wide range of commercial work for owner-managed business and family-owned businesses.  

The work he does for owner-managed businesses ranges from their formation, working with the businesses whilst they grow and assisting them on acquisitions and/or disposals of the business in order to realise the owner manager’s investment.  

He takes a highly commercial view on these transactions and works hard to understand his clients objectives and how their business operates.   

James is a director of Bristol Spaceworks Limited, an enterprise agency based in the east of Bristol which provides affordable work space to business start-ups.

He is also a trustee of The Alderman Steevens Almshouse charity which provides sheltered accommodation to individuals with learning difficulties in the parishes of St Philip, St Jacob and Temple in central Bristol.
