James Anglicas

What is your morning ritual/exercise regime?

My mornings start at 5.00am when my daughter wakes up. Once she settles and goes back to sleep, I usually go to the gym (4-5 days a week).

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

I’ve been training and teaching different martial arts over the last ten years.

Why did you choose law and your practice area?

I have always been interested in the logic and reasoning behind laws. I also enjoy debating and competing generally (sports etc.), and a passion for litigation naturally developed from this.

What has been a career highlight?

The first time I appeared before the (then) Federal Circuit Court and successfully defended a strike-out application brought by opposing Counsel.

What are your goals for 2022?

Firmly establish myself within the Rigby Cooke team and continue to grow my skills as a litigator.

What do you enjoy most about working with your clients?

Bringing about a resolution to the issue they’re facing in a timely and cost-effective manner.
