Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Lawyers

James Dickinson is an advocate of the Royal Court of Jersey and admitted to practise as an English  solicitor and as a solicitor of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court. He established James Dickinson & Co in March 2009 and, together with James Gleeson, established Dickinson Gleeson in August 2010.

James has over 20 years’ experience of complex commercial litigation. His practice is primarily claimant focused, with an emphasis on trust and estate disputes and asset recovery. James represents HNWIs, trustees and banks and regularly represents clients in foreign proceedings.

Since moving to Jersey in 1999 he has acted for clients involved in some of the largest and most complex proceedings to come before the Royal Court including Mayo v Cantrade, Koonmen v Bender, the Teighmore litigation (in relation to the “Shard of Glass”) and the Alhamrani litigation. More recently James has been involved in a range of cutting edge Jersey cases including establishing Jersey’s test for the admission of fresh evidence post-trial but pre-judgment [2016] JRC 190 and one of Jersey’s first statutory Hastings Bass and mistake cases [2016] JRC 048.

James Dickinson has for many years been ranked in leading legal directories including Chambers and Partners, The Legal 500 and the IFC Citywealth Leaders List. James has variously been described as "ferociously bright”, "extraordinarily hard-working", “collaborative and a superb tactition” and as a person who “thrives on complex heavy cases”.

James is an overseas member of the Chancery Bar Association.

WWL says: The “impressive” James Dickinson is popular with clients, who say: “He stands out in Jersey as a first-rate litigator. He is fastidious about the details of his cases and considers issues from every angle.”
