John grew up in Ladue, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. He attended Yale University where he received his B.A. in political science and economics summa cum laude in 1972. John was selected for Phi Beta Kappa after the end of his junior year. In college John was an associate editor of the Yale Scientific Magazine, and has retained his interest in both the social sciences as well as the traditional sciences such as physics, astronomy and engineering.

Since joining the firm he has specialized in tax matters and corporate advice, particularly sophisticated tax planning for individuals and business entities, mergers and acquisitions, and advising on, drafting and implementing employee benefit plans including pension, profit sharing and 401(k) retirement plans, deferred compensation plans and health and welfare plans.
