Initially this concentrated in the investment banking sector for organisations including Hill Samuel, Close Brothers and Noble & Co. In 2007, the enactment of the Legal Services Act initiated profound changes in the way that law firms could raise capital and manage the growth of their businesses. Since then, John has focused on advising numerous legal firms restructure their businesses, raise capital and develop and consolidate their relevant markets through lateral hires and M&A. He is a leading adviser to legal business IPOs and the consolidation of regional legal services firms particularly in the consumer and consultancy legal markets.
