Based in our Coventry Office, John was a cabinet maker before changing career. He trained with BTTJ and became a Partner in 2006. John is also an accredited Mediator. His areas of practice include Insolvency, Debt Collection and Civil Dispute Resolution.
John is known for his plain speaking and no-nonsense approach to Dispute Resolution. He is acutely aware of the need to resolve disputes constructively, comprehensively and cost-effectively.

John advises businesses, individuals and office-holders on a broad range of contentious and non-contentious Insolvency issues, including advising on and assisting in the realisation of assets from insolvent estates, business rescue, Bankruptcy, and Director Disqualification issues.
