John Gibson

John Gibson

Managing Director / Solicitor

It is with great pride that I join The Leaders Council, from August 2021. During my working week, I combine my role of a solicitor with that of directing the business of Aventus Law, a firm of solicitors with a national presence based in Leeds.

I have a drive to try to help people, and I shall be proud to uphold the Principles of The Leaders Council as set out within the Charter, most particularly to commit to making a positive social impact and to conduct my affairs not just for the benefit of my own work but rather for the benefit of the sector and the country at large. 

I believe that with a positive outlook on life and with hard work, we can all achieve great things together and provide a solid base for the happiness, success and contentment for our children, and generations to come.

I am most proud to be a family man and the majority of my time whilst not in work I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters, and my family generally.
