Johnson, James – Hot 100

Warm, bright and highly businesslike, Clifford Chance’s James Johnson is also one of the magic circle firm’s most consistent performers.

With typical ease, Johnson was one of the biggest billers in Clifford Chance’s banking group – a considerable feat, given that his group is on

a roll.

A man constantly in search of a tie, Johnson has closed deal after deal in the upper mid-market for his loyal stable of clients, which include Royal Bank of Scotland, Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB) and Citibank. Among these, he advised Citibank on the Fiat Avio deal and CSFB on the buyout of Saft.
