Jon is a seasoned litigator, acting mostly for farmers, land owners, and rural businesses. His understanding of his clients’ unique needs, together with a practical approach to disputes, often manages resolution without recourse to the courts. He has been described as “Calm and sensible” (Legal 500 2017) which he considers to be far more flattering than aggressive, passionate or zealous!
Jon began his legal career at Theodore Goddard in the City of London, focusing on commercial property litigation, moving to the Midlands in 2001. He has concentrated predominantly on rural disputes for the past 15 years.
He is a Fellow of the Agricultural Law Association and a member of the Property Litigation Association.
