James Lawson


‘I was always interested in sailing. I’d had a background in clinical negligence and corporate law, and when this opportunity arose it was the perfect mix of insurance and general commercial work – with superyachts as the subject matter,’ says Hill Dickinson partner and member of the firm’s yacht team James Lawson. Now with almost 20 years at the firm, Lawson says he enjoys ‘applying principles of law to a very bespoke project with specific requirements. It’s marrying up theoretical legal knowledge with a practical, very specialised and creative area of work.’ The team has a loyal UHNW clientele, with specialists in every area pertaining to superyacht law, including finance and registration.
