Isadore Goldman's David Oliver celebrates 50 years in law

eTradeWire News/10767554
PORTSMOUTH, U.K. - eTradeWire -- Last week, the team at Isadore Goldman in Portsmouth gathered for a celebration  to mark a significant milestone for David Oliver – 50 years in law.

David's journey in law began even earlier, some 14 years prior, making his contributions to the field all the more remarkable. His legal career had the most modest of beginnings as he worked as a tea boy in a firm near Portsmouth. Demonstrating the ethos that has come to define his career, David used his spare time to study while working. Whilst attending Law School in Guildford, his loving wife Sue worked to support him.  He rose through the ranks, from articled clerk to eventually becoming a partner in local firm, Glanvilles. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to venture out on his own, founding Oliver & Co, which later merged to become Sherwin Oliver and then part of Blake Morgan, under the name Blake Lapthorn, where he spearheaded the Insolvency and Business Recovery team. His last stop before becoming part of the Isadore Goldman family was at Verisona Law.

Beyond his professional practice, David has contributed to the legal community through various roles including serving as Deputy Coroner for Portsmouth, a qualified Arbitrator, a lecturer at the university, and a Deputy District Judge. Each of these positions underscored his diverse talent and his ability to excel across different legal domains. His activities also extended beyond the legal field, including a foray into the world of cable television, the development of the local marina and as adviser to the group that set up the Transplant Games.

One of the defining moments in David's legal career was his leadership in the rescue of Portsmouth Football Club. As part of the team at Verisona Law, he played a pivotal role in what is not just a landmark case for insolvency and business turnaround but also a cherished achievement for the Portsmouth community. The significance of this feat was recognised at the Insolvency & Rescue Awards in 2014, where David's team won the 'Business Rescue of the Year' award, a testament to their exceptional contribution.

David's commitment and contributions to the legal profession were aptly celebrated with a lifetime achievement award at the Portsmouth Business Excellence Awards in 2016. As someone who has been a lifelong supporter of Portsmouth FC, his involvement in saving the club and steering it towards fan ownership is a source of pride not just for him but also for the entire community he so passionately serves.

As David Oliver celebrates 50 years in the law, his journey from the tea room to the courtroom is a compelling narrative of perseverance, excellence, and professional integrity.  Congratulations to David.
