Walkers Dispute Resolution Lawyer a Finalist in Future Leaders Awards

Walkers senior associate James Turnbull is a finalist in Citywealth's Future Leader Awards in the "IFC Senior & Managing Associate of the Year" category.

James, a Jersey Advocate who is part of the firm's Insolvency & Dispute Resolution team, is nominated alongside lawyers from Cayman, Guernsey, Hong Kong and Zurich.

James trained as a Solicitor with Magic Circle firm Allen & Overy and has spent more than a decade offshore, specialising in trusts disputes and cross-border commercial disputes. His cases since working at Walkers include an appeal to the Privy Council which created new law on backwards tracing.

"As our team continues to grow with the recruitment of new lawyers, James is playing a leading role in bringing some of our newest members up to speed with our work, as well as continuing to develop a thriving practice of his own.
