James Taylor is a partner in the Banking & Finance practice of the London office. James’ practice focuses on public and private offerings of debt and equity-linked securities, advising issuers and underwriters on the standalone issue and offering of retail and wholesale medium term notes, commercial paper, certificates of deposit, warrants, convertible and exchangeable bonds and covered bonds, as well as the establishment and update of platforms for the issuance of multiple types of securities, the structuring of liability management transactions and the provision of ongoing advice on securities laws, corporate governance and stock exchange requirements related to them.

James has, in recent years, advised state-owned and privately owned companies and underwriting banks on some of the most cutting edge equity-linked instruments to come to market, including mandatory convertible bonds issued as part of recapitalisation programmes and contingent capital instruments and other forms of regulatory capital issued in compliance with the Basel III guidelines.

James experience has covered a diverse range of jurisdictions, including most parts of Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Russia and the former CIS, New Zealand, Australia and Canada.

Prior to joining Mayer Brown in 2012, James worked in the London and Moscow offices of another large international law firm, and was seconded to the emerging markets group of a major international bank. In addition to his native English, James is fluent in Russian.

In 2014, Financial News included James in its "40 under 40 Rising Stars in Legal Services" list of "the brightest up-and-coming lawyers in European capital markets."
