James Gardner

James Gardner

Call: 2018

James became a member of Twenty Essex in September 2019 on successful completion of his pupillage.

He is now building a broad practice in commercial law, with a particular emphasis on shipping, international trade, banking, company/insolvency and civil fraud. James is familiar with arbitration and has been instructed unled in various disputes under the LMAA terms.

James recently returned to Chambers following a six month secondment with a leading civil fraud boutique in the City. While on secondment he worked on a wide range of High Court actions, including successful applications to continue a derivative claim and for a freezing injunction against a fraudster-employee. As a result, James is very comfortable working as part of a team.

Prior to joining Twenty Essex, James read for undergraduate and masters degrees in English Literature at Keble College, Oxford, obtaining a series of scholarships and prizes.

Alongside his subsequent legal studies, James was an enthusiastic mooter and competed in finals before Carr J, Sharp LJ and Lord Mance. More recently, he has appeared as sole advocate in both the High Court and various County Courts.
