John has been a partner in Silverman Sherliker LLP since 1995 and is head of its busy Dispute Resolution Department and manages a varied and busy civil litigation practice. He has also served as managing partner.

After qualifying as a solicitor in 1987, John decided to specialise in litigation. Since then, John has developed a highly successful dispute resolution practice. He represents clients in High Court and arbitral proceedings, covering civil, commercial and property disputes. He has specialisms in contractual disputes, shareholder and director disputes, intellectual property rights property litigation and construction litigation.  He has considerable experience dealing with both high value and complex matters, often involving multi-jurisdictional issues.

John also has over 20 years’ experience representing clients in a range of mediations and other forms of alternative dispute resolution and is an accredited mediator and accepts appointments as a mediator. Click here to see John’s mediator profile.

John is a very effective dispute resolution lawyer. He is a tenacious litigator, but at the same time one of John’s strengths is an ability to identify the key issues early to enable him to assist the client to resolve a problem as quickly and as cost effectively as the circumstances allow.

John is married with three grown up children. He is a keen rugby follower and for many years was a successful rugby coach. He also enjoys hiking and travel.
