About

James Willis

Employment Law

James qualified as a solicitor in 2001, having completed his academic studies at the University of Sheffield. Throughout his career, he has worked for a number of prestigious regional law firms, joining stevensdrake as Head of Employment Law in 2012.

As well as pursuing and defending the full range of Employment Tribunal claims, James spends a considerable amount of his time providing advice and support to businesses of various sizes. He advises on a wide variety of HR and employment law issues, including employment contracts, HR processes and procedures, grievances, disciplinary issues, absenteeism, performance management and settlement agreements. He also regularly helps clients with redundancy exercises and internal reorganisations.

James has previously been described as an ‘Associate to Watch’ by Chambers UK, an independent guide to the legal profession. His clients regard him as “thorough”, “easy to work with” and someone who avoids blinding them with legal jargon.

Outside of work, James balances family life with ambitions of swimming, running and cycling a bit faster.
