James Ellis

Associate Director

James joined Cavendish in 2011 after two and half years at a regional corporate finance boutique, where he worked on 20 deals covering technology, insurance, property repair and aerospace and defence. James also assisted in the appraisal of possible investment opportunities for a venture capital fund run by a high net worth individual who had previously invented capacitive touch sensing technology for consumer applications such as the iPhone.

James is a chartered accountant by background, qualifying at PricewaterhouseCoopers in 2008. James graduated with a first class Economics degree from Southampton University in 2005, winning the Pearce and Rowan Prize for best final examination performance and achieving a shortlisting in the national finals of The SET Economics Student of the Year Award.

"Cavendish took the time to really understand our business enabling them to have a professional and well thought out approach to the deal. They assisted immensely with the due diligence process this being reflected in the depth of information needed at times along with the need to carefully manage the numerous requests for information.

They provided the kind of support which in the process of selling your business gives you confidence that there is balance between providing information and negotiating elements of the deal.
