LLP Partner, Corporate Law.
Email: cjs@silvermansherliker.co.uk

Chris has particular expertise in the fields of company and commercial law, including business sales and purchases, business development issues, company structures, commercial negotiation, software, intellectual property matters, mergers, acquisitions and disposals, shareholder disputes, management buy-outs, computer law, distribution and agency, franchising and trade marks. He has written and broadcast widely on such legal issues.

In addition to a broad range of commercial clients in the UK, Chris also acts for a number of overseas companies particularly in the United States and frequently travels in the US and Europe in the course of business.

Chris gained an Open Scholarship to read Law at Cambridge University from which he graduated with Honours in 1977. After qualifying as a solicitor he worked in Brussels with the Directorate-General IV of the European Commission, specialising in legal aspects of Joint Ventures.

On returning to London in 1981 he joined the City law firm, Herbert Smith and subsequently Cameron McKenna, where he specialised in Company and Commercial work and developed particular specialism in UK and EU Competition Law.

One thing you may be interested to know about Chris is that he is a keen fly fisherman.

Client Testimonials:

“I used Chris to advise me during the sale of my last venture to BT and NVP, he was extremely thorough and very responsive. I enjoyed working with Chris and would recommend him to anyone who needs a sharp mind when you are faced with strong legal teams on the other side of a transaction. Great Results, Personable, On Time."

Brendan Dowling, CEO, Founder, Digital Trading

“Having previously used his services on a number of occasions, I employed Chris in the sale process of my company. Throughout the long and detailed negotiations he was a key player in ensuring we achieved a very good price and more importantly a secure agreement protecting my interests then and in the future. I have continued to use his services since then and will employ him again in the sale of my next business.”

Peter Seagroatt, Chairman, PS&A Ltd

“This chap is a treasure. He's open, generous, wise and witty. He knows all about his profession and he's a leader in the combination of the law and social media channels. I recommend him to anyone as a proper chap and great legal counsel.”

Mike Briercliffe, Owner, Briercliffe Associates

“Christopher is a great guy to work with because of his personality, creativity and intelligence. As a guest on my podcast "How UK Lawyers are Using Social Media" Chris helped bring in one of the largest audiences I have had on my program. He is also an innovator and thought leader as one of the first lawyers in the UK to put their firm on Twitter. I would highly recommend him to anybody that needs a corporate Lawyer in the UK.”

Adrian Dayton Esq, CEO, 2 Comrades LLC

“Chris Sherliker has represented my company, Logicscope, on several occasions. We found him at all times intelligent, responsive and flexible - all at reasonable cost.” Personable , Expert , Good Value

John Jessop, Director, Logicscope

“I would highly recommend Chris Sherliker and Silverman Sherliker as the ultimate legal partner. Chris has helped us in registering a trade mark as well as other legal matters and I found him to be very prompt, completely understood our needs and was extremely efficient.”

Elena Todorova-Stanev, Director, Triple Marketing Limited

“Chris and his firm Silverman Sherliker have carried out work for my family since shortly after they were founded and in 1998 they carried out the conveyance of a home I bought. When I started in business I used another firm due to their location and lack of thought on my part, but it was to Silverman Sherliker that I went a number of years later as it transpired that some of the advice that from the other firm I had received was wrong as set to cost me a huge amount of money. That situation was resolved and I am happy to say that having dealt with Chris and members of his team on a number of matters since they have always given good solid and, as important, commercial advice. Chris is also far from what you would expect from the average lawyer as on top of that professionalism and commercialism is also a forward thinking business owner who has embraced new technology like Twitter and the firm are, I believe, one of the first in the UK to have their own iPhone App to help with trademarking and brand security. If people ask me for a recommendation for a lawyer it is to Chris & Silverman Sherliker that I send them.”

Richard Alvin, Group Managing Director, Capital Business Media

“Christopher Sherliker is one of the most proactive and forward thinking users of the social media amongst lawyers - engaging with others and building relationships, advising and alerting his contacts to the legal issues and business opportunities to be found when doing business in the brave new world of the new media. I have introduced work to him on the basis of his energy, drive and knowledge of the law - and his commitment to making the relationship with the client a valuable one for the client.”

Sara Dixon, Owner, Firm Beliefs

“Chris is a thought leader in the use of modern technology to drive a law firm forward. We have a mutual understanding of the benefits to lawyers of using social media and have appeared together on webinars hosted in the USA on this topic. Chris is, of course, a very experienced business and commercial lawyer with specialist knowledge in IT/IP and trade marks. He is the first port of call for me when referring my clients to a solicitor who can advise in these areas. His approach is one of warmth and kindness with wit thrown in to boot. I would highly recommend Chris and his firm, Silverman Sherliker, to anyone needing good honest legal advice in England.”

Brian Inkster, Founder, Inksters Solicitors

“I have used the services of Chris Sherliker a number of times. From basic company formation to complex corporate law issues, I have always found Chris to be a fantastic lawyer who not only 'knows his stuff' but has the rare ability to explain it to the layman in understandable terms.”

Ian Green, Director, Green Legal & Financial Consultancy

“Chris has been able to give me invaluable advice on how to move my business forward - and when to seek legal help. He is extremely personable, with over twenty years of experience. Unlike most lawyers he is very entrepreneurial in his thinking and outlook, so he and his firm will be a great asset to any growing firm. (They are also very affordable as a firm.) Whilst this recommendation is for Chris, I rate very highly all the members of the firm. I have recommended Chris and the firm many times over the last six months, and will carry on doing so.”
