Gorvins expands commercial litigation team


Gorvins solicitors is expanding its commercial litigation team with the appointment of new partner, Jonathon Crook.

The 51 year-old Cambridge graduate brings a timely global touch to the Stockport based team, having previously been a partner with several international law firms both in the UK and also in Hong Kong where he was admitted as a solicitor.

He has also acted for clients involved in disputes in various other Asian jurisdictions including China, India and the Middle East.

Although the Blackburn-born lawyer has extensive experience in all areas of commercial litigation- ranging from acting for multi-nationals in cross border disputes to advising shareholders in family owned businesses - his particular area of expertise involves claims arising from the sale of financial products and other investments both to companies and to individuals.

The Cheshire based father of three said he was particularly looking forward to using his expertise in banking and financial services disputes to assist the continuing growth of the firm.

Mr Crook said: `I’m delighted to be joining join Gorvins as the firm shares my philosophy of providing commercial, efficient and cost effective advice. I`m also joining at the start of what is likely to be unpredictable few years for businesses who trade with the rest of the world and especially within Europe and who will increasingly need advice and support from lawyers with international experience”.

Martin Hoare, the firm`s managing partner added: `Jonathon’s appointment is a very exciting development for Gorvins, he adds a wealth of experience and expertise. His appointment further reinforces our mission to provide the very best legal services to the SME business community and to our private clients!”

Away from the office, Mr Crook enjoys playing cricket, walking in the Peak District, following Blackburn Rovers and making use of his international experience by experimenting in the kitchen with Asian cuisine.
