John Wiblin

Partner and Head of Commercial Litigation

John took an undergraduate degree in Ancient History before entering law school in Johannesburg, South Africa.  He was called to the South African bar in 1998.  After completing pupillage, he joined Group 725, Innes Chambers - a commercial barristers’ set located opposite Johannesburg’s High Court.  He was admitted to the California bar in 2002 and as a solicitor in this country in 2004. John holds higher rights of audience, entitling him to the same rights of appearance in the English court system as any barrister.  And, in addition to being an accredited mediator and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, John has also received advanced negotiation skills training at Harvard Law School.

He regularly advises on and conducts litigation matters for commercial clients – these are chiefly contractual disputes between businesses, especially recruitment businesses. John has acquired significant experience of emergency remedies such as injunctions and search orders.  After completing a Masters degree in the subject at King’s College, London in 2010, John is now also increasingly instructed in copyright-related disputes.

John became a partner in Longmores in January 2012.
