Leading junior James Man joins Wilberforce Chambers

Wilberforce is delighted to announce that James Man has joined Chambers.

James’s established reputation and experience in commercial and trusts disputes adds to the existing pool of talent in our core specialist areas and supports our litigation and arbitration practices internationally and in the UK.

James was called to the Bar in Hong Kong in 2014 and to the UK Bar in 2023. He has an active and busy Hong Kong practice which he will maintain alongside developing a UK and offshore practice. His core litigation and arbitration expertise is focused on commercial and corporate disputes, civil fraud, property, trusts and probate disputes.

Operating from Wilberforce Chambers in London, James will remain an active member of Temple Chambers in Hong Kong.

James is ranked as a leading junior in both Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500, where he is described as “outstanding”, “commercially minded”, and an “effective and versatile advocate”.

Brian Green KC (Head of Chambers) says: “I am delighted that James is joining as a member of Wilberforce Chambers. As a recognised specialist in areas such as trusts, commercial, company, fraud and property law, his arrival will add to our established reputation in domestic and international disputes”.

Nicholas Luckman (Practice Director) says: “James has an excellent reputation, and his recruitment perfectly complements Chambers’ core practice areas. His strong profile in Asia supports the increasing amount of work we do for clients in that region and in offshore jurisdictions”.
