Hi, I'm John Bailes

I am the founding owner and managing director of Bailoran Solicitors.

I founded Bailoran Solicitors to provide you with a friendly, no nonsense and commercial approach to resolving your legal issues.

I believe that all clients deserve exceptional levels of client care. This includes not only legal expertise but also commercial awareness and an understanding of personal factors to ensure our legal solutions place you in a better position than prior to instruction.

As a result we strive to be the "go to" niche commercial solicitors in Yorkshire, recognised for client services and value.

I hope you find this website useful. If you need any further assistance please contact our offices for an initial free chat.

Working for you conflict free

About Us

Bailoran acts for businesses, company directors and individuals specialising in Dispute Resolution, Company & Personal Insolvency, Company & Commercial Law, Debt Recovery and Employment. These areas of expertise help us protect businesses from start to finish.

A number of clients come to us because their existing commercial solicitors cannot defend claims brought by banks. We do not act for any banks or have any panel positions and are therefore conflict free. This independence ensures that you can be confident we will argue your case forcefully and in your best interests and we have had great success over the years doing this on our clients’ behalf.

“Extremely helpful and courteous”

“I would like to write to you and thank Bailoran for the way they carried out the collection of our outstanding debt with a very awkward and stubborn client. You were extremely helpful and courteous during the process and kept us informed at all times even when the client tried using his vast knowledge of the legal system. Overall we would highly recommend your company and look forward to using you again in the near future.”

“No hesitation in recommending”

“We are an employment and family specialist practice but frequently have matters that require insolvency, litigation and commercial input. We would have no hesitation in recommending John Bailes and Carys Everitt personally to new clients as we have done on numerous occasions previously. We have always been provided with a first class service and we have peace of mind that our clients have been referred on to trusted individuals.”

“Helped me go forward in my business”

“I met Carys from Bailoran Solicitors at a networking event where I found out about her expertise in business contracts and T&Cs. Since our introduction she has helped me create a water tight agreement for my clients so I am covered in all areas for an event management business. Carys even helped me highlight areas that I didn’t know were required for my business to ensure my contracts protect myself and business but also act in the best interest of my customers. I would highly recommend Carys and Bailoran Solicitors for the help and support they have given me over the past 12 months, and helped me go forward in my business by protecting mine and my customers best interests.”
