John SherwoodConsultant Solicitor
John joined Hague & Dixon LLP as a Consultant Solicitor in 2012.
He qualified as a solicitor in 1979 and became a partner in a well-regarded practice in 1986. In 1988, he set up his own practice with his then business partner at Pocklington where he remained a senior partner until joining Hague & Dixon LLP.
John works within the Private Client Department and specialises in assisting those clients wishing to put their affairs in order, whether through Will making, amending Wills following the birth of a child perhaps, dealing with the preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection applications and helping clients with bereavement and Probate.
John is also involved where necessary with Property related matters such as Residential and Agricultural Conveyancing.
He keeps in close touch with the community as a Parish councillor and with the farming community as the only non-farming Director on the Board of Brandsby Agricultural and Trading Association where he has been involved for the last ten years.
In his spare time, John can usually be found most Saturdays in his beloved Lake District walking the fells. He is an active supporter of Patterdale Mountain Rescue, and Friends of the Lake District.
John is based in our Pickering office.
