Advisory Board Member
Principal Associate (Employment & Labour), Eversheds Sutherland

John is “a fantastic lawyer who is very knowledgeable [who] builds a great rapport with clients” and who “is hard working, analytical and pragmatic, being well thought of by clients and colleagues alike while working on cutting edge law.” He combines substantial ‘deal lawyer’ experience with industrial relations knowledge, carving out a particular niche in supporting businesses to find their way through knotty collective bargaining issues during corporate transactions.

John previously researched international and comparative labour law at an Ivy League law school in the USA and retains a substantial practice in comparative industrial relations and employment legal issues. He has written for The TimesPeople ManagementThe Banker and many other industry publications and has lectured at several universities on industrial relations and employment issues. He provides substantial pro bono legal support on the development of employment law policy to a major UK political party and enjoys contributing to discussion on the future of employment law and ‘work’ more broadly.
