James Overton

Paralegal - Property Team

Following the completion of my undergraduate law degree, I worked for a large firm in Oxfordshire as part of their employment and company commercial team before joining Hedges in July 2020 as a paralegal within the property division.

I am passionate about labour equality rights and during my final year of study I published a dissertation paper on the intersection between labour workforce and technology. This dissertation was awarded and has since been used as teaching material. I was also awarded the Outstanding Contribution Award 2018 for my contribution towards the Malaysian Student Transfer Programme.

I am also passionate about British agriculture and farming, having had the opportunity to work on growers’ farms in Kent in the summers and between University terms. I can drive tractors, spray crops and mend fences! Now I have my little loyal friend I enjoy getting out into the countryside for some tractor spotting!


I am passionate about Land Rover, particularly series 3 defenders. One day soon I shall be roaming about in the Oxfordshire countryside with my very own!

There is nothing better on the weekend and evenings than being able to spend some quality time with my partner and our little adventure puppy, Ralph.
