John Holder

John Holder is a practising solicitor and a Senior Solicitor in the firm of Gullands in Maidstone, Kent. Formerly Senior Partner of another Kent firm of solicitors he retired in 2014 but was enticed out of retirement to join Gullands (to avoid getting under his wife’s feet, he maintains).

John specialises in company/commercial work, acting for business owners, partners and directors.  His aim in life is to persuade business people to take advice before – and not after – taking decisions.  He believes that this is 10 time more likely to lead to a successful outcome, at probably one tenth of the cost of trying to put things right afterwards.


Former member of the Council of the Law Society; Past President of Kent Law Society; Fellow of the Institute of Directors, Chartered Director
