John retired in 2017, having been with the practice for over 30 years, advising businesses and individuals on employment law, commercial and company issues.
He has been featured in the prestigious Chambers and Partners directory of lawyers for the past five years in relation to his employment expertise.
He was previously a Commercial Litigator with Osborne Clarke, before becoming a partner in one of the original firms that merged to form Gregg Latchams.
John remains with GL Law in a consultative capacity.
“As shareholders and directors of a financial services company we relied on John Dalby and his colleagues for many years. When we received an offer for the business they were the natural choice to guide us through the sale process. It was a tight timetable and complex structure, so the Gregg Latchams team pulled out all the stops to get the deal done. We were delighted with the outcome.”
“John and the Gregg Latchams team were outstanding. They combined the need to focus and deliver on the detail of the deal with the pursuit and achievement of the bigger picture. Their advice was clear, robust and pragmatic. They kept their promises and hit the deadlines – even if this meant working through the night. They did all this with humility, good humour and within budget. The whole Finnamore Board were very impressed.”
“John is amazing - he listens, is very attentive, and comes up with sensible ideas in a stressful situation. I can't praise him highly enough.”
