Overview

Before coming to 3PB, John completed a 12-month pupillage at 11 Stone Buildings where he worked on Commercial Litigation, Probate, Property Law, and in particular Corporate and Personal Insolvency.

John has a level of experience in insolvency matters well beyond his year of Call and has attended the winding-up list in the Rolls building on numerous occasions.

John is a skilled and natural advocate, and won Best Orator in the 2013 Oxford University International Media Law Moot in the face of competitors from the likes of Oxford, Cambridge, Stanford and Harvard Universities.  He also accepts instruction to produce written advice in all areas of his expertise.

Insolvency

John undertook a significant amount of Insolvency work during pupillage and has a level of experience in Insolvency matters equivalent to a general practitioner many years his senior.  He has made numerous appearances at the winding-up court at the Rolls building and in county courts in respect of personal insolvency matters.

John has had exposure to complex and high-value disputes between liquidators and former directors for matters such as:

  • Breach of directors' duties
  • Transactions at undervalue
  • Preferences.

Commercial

John has had exposure to high-level, multi-million pound commercial disputes both during pupillage and whilst at 3PB.  He is capable of advising on the application of commercial and contract law to complex, multi-party arrangements.

John has a particular interest in cross-border commercial disputes, having studied Conflict of Laws whilst at Oxford.

Property and Estates

John gained a solid understanding of Property and other traditional Chancery work during pupillage and has produced written advice and made county court appearances in relation to property matters.

He is well-placed to receive instruction on both written and court-based work in this area.

Probate

John has had exposure to probate matters both during pupillage and while at 3PB.  In particular he has had exposure to the issues of:

  • Interpretation of wills
  • Invalidity of wills (for example as a result of incapacity and the operation of the "golden rule")
  • The rights and duties of executors.
