Practice Areas

Jonathan is a specialist in professional regulatory and disciplinary matters affecting solicitors and their practices, as well as other legal professionals. He provides advice, support and representation for clients dealing with allegations of professional misconduct and for individuals who are otherwise the subject of regulatory scrutiny.

Jonathan’s extensive client base is composed of law firms, individual solicitors, paralegals, trainees, practice managers and various other entities across the UK and overseas. He has particular expertise in the professional regulation of solicitors, aiding firms and individuals (including COLPs and COFAs) in achieving continuing regulatory compliance, and in making appropriate disclosures when rules might not have been complied with to the letter.

A core part of Jonathan’s practice is to guide clients through responses to SRA enquiries. This has included brokering Regulatory Settlement Agreements and the resolution of matters without further action taken by the regulator.

In addition, Jonathan is an experienced advocate. He regularly appears before the SDT, and his experience as a former prosecutor for the SRA provides him with unparalleled insight.
