Star Individuals

Content
John Sheahan QC is generally acknowledged as "one of the leading silks in the country," not only for high-stakes commercial briefs in general, but also for restructuring and insolvency mandates specifically. One source says: "In the field of complex corporate restructurings he's outstanding; you couldn't do better," while another observes: "He's run some hugely complex stuff; his mind is razor-sharp." Similar attributes are stressed where his wider work is concerned, one interviewee summing him up as "the best commercial practitioner I've worked with - unparalleled in terms of his ability to cut through complexity, argue difficult points and persuade through subtlety."
