Meet the team

John Stagg


As a Partner and the head of the Business Services department across our four offices, I am responsible for ensuring that we deliver high quality legal advice to our business clients.

I gained my law degree from the University of the West of England in 2002 and was admitted as a solicitor in 2007. I joined Thomson & Bancks in December 2013 and became a partner in July 2019.

I have, throughout my legal career, specialised in commercial property and business affairs. Before qualifying as a solicitor I helped run a distribution and wholesale business so I have commercial nous as well as a wealth of legal experience that informs my advice to clients.

I would be happy to provide legal representation for you in a range of matters including:

  • buying and selling commercial property
  • developing property for commercial or residential use
  • leases of commercial property
  • transferring property to your SIPP / SSAS pension fund / leasing it back
  • setting up your business including drafting your partnership / shareholder agreement
  • selling or restructuring your business

Feel free to contact me to discuss your needs or to arrange an introductory meeting. Whilst I am based in our Cheltenham branch I also work regularly at our other branches in Tewkesbury, Pershore, and Stratford-upon-Avon and would be happy to meet you at the most convenient location.

Away from the office I enjoy competing in triathlons and conquering the odd mountain. I am a trustee of a music charity, Soundworld, which promotes the teaching of contemporary classical music composition in schools.
