Below are some comments from previous clients of James Edwards. Further details of these endorsements are available from Linked In at www.linkedin.com/pub/james-edwards/3/13a/990.

James is a first class lawyer with strong commercial nous. I have no hesitation recommending him as a trusted and pragmatic business / legal advisor who knows how to get things done.

It was both an honour and pleasure working closely with James for years at Turner International! James is a true professional, extremely responsive and proactive in his work. While very well respected by his peers within the legal profession, he is also known in the media and digital world, for possessing a keen business mind. On top of being articulate and sharp, James is also a kind, sincere and fun individual. A trusted team player that everyone loves to pal with! More than happy to recommend James to anyone and any field!

I’ve worked with James extensively for approximately four years on numerous legal work – Compliance, Risk Management, Sales Contracts, Vendor Contracts, NDA’s, Broadcast Regulations, Standards & Practices, and Training, and I would not hesitate in recommending James. I found certain qualities unique to James, that most in the legal profession do not possess:

1) He understood that we were not lawyers and sought to distill and simplify legal matters/jargon in an effective way.

2) He was masterful in finding a balance between legal risk and understanding of business needs/realities.

3) He was enjoyable to work with and sought to make himself a part of our team rather than imposing his legal authority.

4) He took the time to truly understand our business, and frequently demonstrated his knowledge by bringing up issues that worked in our interests.

I’ve had the privilege of working with James for over 4 years and can easily say that besides being a great person to work with, he is a fantastic lawyer as well. James is very approachable and knowledgeable. His vast experience and sound knowledge of the media business allows him to propose workable solutions to any matter. He also manages his professional and social life very well and is a great team-player.

James has supported me in drafting/negotiating number of important and difficult contracts that required knowledge of both commercial and cultural backgrounds of unique countries. I look forward to working with him again if our paths cross in the future.

Thorough and detailed, James’ vast experience lent itself perfectly to identifying potential risks before they occurred. I could always depend on him to address client concerns without compromising our commercial needs. He understands very well the nuances in each market across the region and was a real pleasure to work with.

James is one of the finest lawyers I have worked with. He has a rare mix of legal acumen and business prudence and uses it effectively to steer a transaction. He is also a wonderful person and I’ve enjoyed working with him.

James is delight to work with, he brings oodles of professionalism without the staidness of a corporate culture. Detail oriented, multi faceted and not prone to panic, James is the person you go to during a crisis and you can be sure he will shepherd you through.
