Adam Kudryl joined Harper James in April 2018 as a Corporate Partner. He is a highly experienced corporate and commercial lawyer.

In the corporate field, Adam helps businesses ranging from micro and start-up businesses and high growth businesses to large corporates, including some household names. This work includes making and receiving strategic investments, company and business acquisitions, company and business sales (mostly of niche businesses to large PLCs), helping negotiate the terms of debt funding and structuring joint ventures.

In the commercial field, he specialises in helping niche businesses to negotiate with larger often global businesses (both as customers and suppliers to the niche businesses), helping them to get a good deal and on fair terms.

Adam trained and qualified in to a boutique corporate law firm in 2003 and went on to spend the majority of his senior career in Top 100 law firms.

He’s had substantial previous experience in the following sectors:

  • Technology, including software and digital commerce
  • Creative industries, including media, entertainment & publishing, and advertising & marketing
  • Life sciences and healthcare, including partnership/practice agreements, pharmaceuticals and the dental industry

In his spare time, when not chasing around after his wife and two sons, Adam is an avid CrossFit athlete and Olympic weightlifter, regularly competing in both sports. He recently won Gold medals in the Masters 73kg bodyweight category at the British Masters Weightlifting Championships (2020), and at the English Weightlifting Championships (2021). During the first lockdown he won outright the Spartan Race Virtual Ireland event (beating 527 other worldwide competitors) and is now training for his first in-person Spartan Race. He also came 18th in age group of the recent HYROX Virtual World Championships and is hoping to do an in-person HYROX event in the future.
