He appeared in the Supreme Court in 2016 in the appeals in Taiwo v Olaigbe and Onu v Akwiwu and is currently instructed in a series of civil claims brought on behalf of human trafficking victims. In 2018 he represented a victim of modern slavery in her successful Criminal Injuries Compensation appeal to the First Tier Tribunal on the basis that servitude constitutes a crime of violence.

James is currently undertaking a PhD at King’s College London on modern slavery, tort, and human rights law. His multi-disciplinary practice allows him to advise in relation to human trafficking and modern slavery cases which intersect several practice areas, domestic and international law.
