Head of Corporate

Meet John's team

“Clients know that we have an independent outlook and that their interests always come first”

John is Head of our Corporate Team and has a long history with the firm after joining us 25 years ago.

John works with a wide range of clients and credits taking the time to get to know them and their business inside out with his success, identifying and protecting their interests. “Looking out for our clients is what motivates us here at Walker Morris. It’s one of the reasons why they keep coming back”.

Commercially aware and practical advice

For John, being able to help clients achieve their goals while mitigating their risk profile is the most rewarding part of his job. To be able to do this, he needs to understand the client’s business and identify what the key commercial drivers of any transaction might be.

Attention to detail and being able to concentrate on what’s important are strengths he considers key to this process.

Put yourself in the other person’s shoes

Describing his working style as direct and pragmatic, John acknowledges that the most challenging aspect of his role is often the people, which is why he tries to take an empathetic approach and really consider the other side’s perspective.

John is endorsed by ‘The Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom’ directory for corporate finance law and is recognised by both Chambers and Legal 500.
