Meet the team

James Leyland


I am a solicitor specialising in commercial and agricultural property. I undertake a wide range of work, including sales and purchases of commercial and agricultural properties as well as Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, Agricultural Holdings Act and farm business tenancies. I have negotiated complex land transaction documents including option and promotion agreements, easements, and overage / uplift deeds. I also undertake mortgage / security work.

Having studied for a degree in law at Nottingham Trent University, I qualified as a solicitor in 2002. My initial specialism was property litigation. However I soon switched to non-contentious property work and practised in Warwick and Worcester, before joining Thomson & Bancks in May 2019.

Outside of work, my spare time is split between my family and my other loves of sourcing and cooking with local ingredients, distance walking and following Worcester Warriors RFC. I am also a trustee and chair of a charity in Worcester.
