James Cowell

James has extensive experience of advising companies and their shareholders and directors acting on their corporate transactions. James has developed a niche specialism in advising businesses in the electronics waste recycling/reuse industry and has negotiated deals with major household names to whom his clients provide recycling services.

James qualified with a firm in the City and spent a further two years in London before moving to the North West. He joined Taylors, having spent over 5 years working in Manchester in the Corporate Department of a national law firm. His experience extends to:-

  • Business Sales
  • Acquisitions and Disposals
  • Corporate Finance
  • Shareholder Agreements
  • Partnerships
  • Joint Ventures
  • Management Buy Outs and Buy Ins
  • Venture Capital

including acting on the sale of a large insurance broker to a major European insurance company, acting for one of Europe’s largest credit management companies on the disposal of part of its business and the sale of a multi-national travel consultancy and event organiser to a major UK exhibition and conference host.

Whilst he is now settled in Bolton with his wife, James retains some ties with the area he grew up in and can regularly be seen at lower league football grounds in the North West, where he supports Peterborough United. He is also a keen golfer, playing off a handicap of 7.
