JOHN H. LIVELY
Managing Partner and Founder
John’s forte is helping guide his clients in the creation and development of cost-effective business solutions suited to their needs. Throughout his 20+ year professional career, John has focused on financial services regulation. During his legal career, he has centered his entire practice on serving the needs of clients in the investment management industry. His extensive experience working in-house and as outside counsel to both major investment management companies, investment advisers, financial services companies, and private fund companies enables him to offer sound, practical advice to clients with complex legal issues. John also counsels his clients on a variety of regulatory and compliance matters, including organizational and registration issues. Before founding Practus, John was a Partner with Husch Blackwell, Managing Attorney with Raymond James, Associate General Counsel for INVESCO, and an associate at Dechert LLP.
When he's not working, John enjoys the adventures and misadventures of traveling with his family. (It's those misadventures that make the best stories after all). When he's home, you'll find him on the sidelines of a lacrosse field or a tennis court cheering on his four children, or going for long runs with his wife, Tracey.
