James Beatton

Managing Partner

I’m the managing partner of Cripps, responsible for managing the strategic and operational direction of the business.

My role is to bring together people across the business to help make a positive difference to our clients, our people, our community and our planet.

I am also a corporate lawyer with more than 25 years’ experience of working with businesses of all sizes on a full range of corporate and advisory matters.

Many of the clients I work with are in the insurance sector where I advise businesses on their growth and exit strategies.

I also specialise in working with and delivering transactions for complex shareholder groups who often have diverse or conflicting interests.

I am ranked in the leading legal directory, Chambers and Partners 2024.
