James Johnston, founder of Machique Translations, has over thirty years’ experience of cross-border legal work. After graduating from Oxford as a linguist, he trained as a solicitor at a City of London firm. On qualifying as a solicitor, he worked for some years in corporate, commercial and banking law in London and Paris, where he was also admitted to the Paris Bar* as an avocat.

James went on to specialise in private client work (including wills, estates, taxation, trusts, property and litigation), acquiring extensive practical experience of Anglo-French legal work. He has lectured on cross-border legal matters in France, Switzerland, Belgium and Italy as well as the UK.
