James Pigott

Director of Compliance

About James Pigott

As Director of Compliance at Invicta Law, I ensure that Invicta Law complies with its professional responsibilities and that our work meets and exceeds the very high standards required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, ISO, LEXCEL and most importantly, our clients. The company specialises in advising public sector organisations on legal matters.

I have been a director of Invicta Law from its inception in 2016. I support our board and all our staff on legal, compliance and quality matters having fulfilled many of the key roles in the company including Joint Chief Executive (COLP). With the members of my team, I develop the business from a compliance and quality perspective.

I believe in being a fair, supportive and enabling leader, showing staff at all levels by my example how they can be great and effective lawyers giving them technical and strategic support.

I am a qualified solicitor having worked in private practice for many years. I hold a diploma in Local Government Law and Practice having gained significant experience through leadership in public and private practice. My focus is on supporting my team of lawyers and support staff to really understand our clients needs and business, to have open minds, great communication skills and a sound knowledge of the law.

We are a people business and I enjoy making time for people, whether they are clients or members of staff. I want to inspire all our staff to be the best they can be, to provide outstanding pragmatic legal advice within budget and on time and to create mutually trusting client relationships.

James is a firm believer in the potential for Invicta Law to challenge the way legal services are provided to the UK public sector.

Client testimonials

“I am writing in praise of your support. As someone in the firing line of an ultra-aggressive legal team for the first time in my life, this was a traumatic and, at times, upsetting process. You were at my side, dispensing wise and calming counsel throughout. You have been readily available when crises occurred, have been a wonderful listener and, in the end, we reached an outcome that was highly satisfactory for our school and its pupils. I cannot speak highly enough of the way that you handled this case, and I thank you and your firm for the support you gave me. Being a chair of governors, sworn to confidentiality, can be a lonely business! You kept me sane.”
Chair of School Governors
“You’ve been incredibly helpful with this. Thanks for always replying so promptly and for being a star.”
Private Sector Town Planning & Development Consultancy
“The experience has been really top end. Rather than just offering the options, they have given some real solid advice on the best route. It's a good business 'partnering' approach.”
Kent Fire and Rescue Service
“Their employment advice has always proved to be sound. I’ve worked with lots of different lawyers in London boroughs and. I’d also say that Invicta Law is the most solution-focused.”
