James Walker - 1981 - 2019


James tragically passed away on 30th September 2019.  He was a much-loved member of the Lee & Thompson family.

He joined the firm in 2012 and was a central part of the Film & TV Group working with many of the firm’s most established film and television producer clients.

Before joining Lee & Thompson, James attended the National Film & Television School where he was awarded the Cineworld scholarship and obtained an MA in Producing for Film and Television. He wrote and produced various short films for which he won several awards, including a BAFTA in 2014.

James was a kind, modest and talented colleague and friend.  It is very rare to have the breadth of talent and personality to succeed as both a lawyer and a creative producer/writer but James did this effortlessly.

He is missed terribly by his colleagues and clients and will always be remembered with love and admiration.
