about James

James Sturgess is the National Director of Development and joins the Macpherson Kelley executive team after being a driving force within the firm as a commercial lawyer for more than 30 years.

James’ expertise in working with managing directors and senior management has given him a detailed insight into what clients need from a law firm. He approaches development always from the perspective of what is in it for the client – what is their growth strategy, their exit plans, their personal goals and what is holding them back. This level of detail also enables him to assess whether Macpherson Kelley is the right law firm for a client.

In his role as National Director of Development, James also focuses on the firm and the next generation of Macpherson Kelley leaders. Collaborating with our National Managing Principal Lawyer, Grant Guenther, he uses years of experience to mentor our up and coming senior lawyers to ensure the expertise and culture of the firm remains strong.
