James Knight


James qualified as a solicitor in 1992 with City firm, Trowers and Hamlins. He practised as a commercial lawyer in Oman, Dubai and Hong Kong before returning to England in 1999. The following year, recognising that the archaic legal market was ripe for disruption, James started his own legal consultancy, with one mission: to maintain an uncompromised focus on client service and value which the conventional law firm model could not offer.

In 2002, through exponential growth and strong demand, James launched Keystone Law. The first alternative model that sought to revolutionise legal services, Keystone put the needs of both the client and the lawyer front and centre, for the first time. Now recognised as a well-established market disrupter, Keystone listed on the London Stock Exchange’s junior market in November 2017.

An award-winning, Top 100 firm with a growing international presence, Keystone provides advice to businesses ranging from SMEs to global behemoths, C-Suite Executives and Ultra High Net Worth Individuals. James now focuses on the firm’s day-to-day operations as well as its strategic vision for growth.
