John P Walker - Senior Partner


Our senior partner, John Walker, qualified as a solicitor in 1984. He began his legal career as a Magistrate’s Court Clerk, which gave him invaluable experience from both behind and in front of the bench!

John’s main area of expertise is criminal litigation and he possesses extensive knowledge of the criminal justice system. John is also one of the Midland’s leading legal experts in motoring and road traffic offences and is often asked by the media for his commentary in this area.

As a leading authority on licensing and gaming law, John has built up an extensive client portfolio of local retail & leisure outlets, as well as some of the Midland’s largest networks of night clubs and casinos.
