John is an experienced Commercial Property Partner. He qualified in 2007 and has over 14 years’ post-qualification experience, having acted on the full range of Commercial Property transactions throughout his career. He is a thorough, tenacious and commercially minded solicitor.
John trained at international law firm Eversheds in Birmingham for two years from 2005. Qualifying in 2007, he spent a further 9 years with Eversheds, as Solicitor, Associate and Senior Associate in their corporate occupiers department to 2016.

In 2016 John moved to regional heavyweight Thursfields, where he spent 5 years as a Senior Associate in the Birmingham and Kidderminster offices. He acted for a wealth of local businesses in the midlands region – occupiers, landlords, landowners and developers.
