James Phillips



An LBU graduate with a variety of experience from leading law firms within the UK. I have spent the last year at a US firm specialising in dispute resolution and will begin my training contract with Gannons in January.


I have a broad range of interests from intellectual property and commercial contracts to corporate transactions and share schemes. My particular interest lies within dispute resolution on a range of commercial and corporate matters.

Why I love my job

I enjoy getting to know people and their stories; the “how’s?” and “why’s?” intrigue me. Gannons is the perfect place to engage this intrigue with a wide variety of interesting clients and stories. The work is also hugely varied, encouraging a rounded approach to client advice.
