James Blyth

Senior Associate

I help resolve contract disputes and I advise clients (mostly in the construction industry) on contracts to protect them in case a dispute arises later.

  
I enjoy my work as it allows me to apply my scientific background, based on logical reasoning, to solve problems in the ‘real’ world. I like to break problems up into specific logical steps that a client can take – a flowchart speaks a thousand words.

  
One of the nicest compliments I have received was that I offer great support, both legal and commercial.
