He joined Matheson Ormsby Prentice in 1992 and by then was a full time media and entertainment lawyer dealing with a wide range of clients in film and television production and music. During the next decade he was also a member of the Board of Directors of Screen Producers Ireland and was closely involved in the developments relating to the film and television production sector during that period including serving on the Taoiseach's Committee 1992 which recommended the re-establishment of the IFB and the Kilkenny Committee 1998/1999 which brought forward recommendations for the advance of film and television production in Ireland. He became Chairman of Matheson Ormsby Prentice partnership in 2004 and served two two year terms in that position while continuing to practice in media and entertainment law during that period.

The chairman also spoke of the evolving role of the IFB, finishing with :""We are working in a very different environment to the one we faced five years ago and we see this appointment as an important step in the ongoing review of the Board's functions in order to ensure that the organisation meets the needs of Irish film makers and the industry as a whole for the next 5 years."
James Hickey commented on his new role, stating: "I am deeply honoured to have been given the opportunity to take up the post of Chief Executive of Bord Scannán na hÉireann/The Irish Film Board. All my working life I have been involved in various roles in the world of the arts and film and television production and I look forward very much to working with all the staff of the Board in my new role. I would like to thank my partners in Matheson Ormsby Prentice for their friendship and support over the years. I hope, in taking up this position, that I will be able to make a contribution to the promotion of the culture of film making and the development of the industry of film production in Ireland in my new position."
