James WilmottJames's practice covers a wide range of corporate activities, with a focus on mergers and acquisitions, IPOs and private equity transactions. He also has experience advising on joint ventures, reorganisations, start-ups and technical and regulatory matters. Before joining Carey Olsen in 2010 he worked at Jones Day in Singapore and Pinsent Masons in Birmingham.

She has a broad trust practice and is regularly involved in non- and semi-contentious trust proceedings, including applications by trustees for directions from the Royal Court or for the rectification of trust instruments and ancillary documents.
