Alex James, Solicitor, Corporate
I am a solicitor in the corporate group having trained at the firm and qualified in September 2015. I am involved in a variety of work across the team including mergers and acquisitions, venture capital transactions and equity capital markets work.
I have recently worked on a number of transactions including advising edtech start-up Fuse Universal on a $10m equity investment by US venture capital firm Education Growth Partners; advising Quiqup on a multi-million pound Series A funding round led by Delivery Hero and Rocket Internet; and advising one of the world's leading organisations providing management consulting, technology and outsourcing services on the acquisition of a software consulting services company and a logistics business.
In my spare time I enjoy playing and following football, playing the piano and guitar, cinema, and playing golf.
