Our People | Jack Porus

Jack Porus Joint Managing Partner

“Since joining Glaister Ennor in 1972 I have practised in all areas of Property Law, Commercial Law, Trusts and Estate Planning. For over 30 years I have been the Managing Partner of the firm. I have extensive skills in negotiation and practise as an experienced mediator.

I am a trusted advisor to many families and businesses providing pragmatic solutions for a wide range of family and business issues.

I assist clients to invest funds in mortgages through our firm’s nominee company and in syndicated property investments which deliver high levels of regular income.

I am a director of a number of substantial companies and a trustee of both personal and charitable trusts.

All of my practice is based on building and maintaining long term business relationships.”
