Before that he worked in Baker McKenzie’s Wealth Management department where he became partner in 2004.
He has more than 20 years’ experience advising on international private client matters. He specialises in sophisticated complex cross-border tax and succession planning, multi-jurisdictional investment structures and advisory work for trustees, beneficiaries and families with international interests.

He will be the fifth partner in the Private Capital team advising business owners, entrepreneurs and international families on their legal issues. Jonathan will leverage his core expertise and skills and utilise the potential of Harbottle & Lewis’s wide range of legal advisory services.
Jonathan said: “I am very excited about joining the team at Harbottle & Lewis. Harbottle & Lewis have always acted for wealth creators which make it a great fit for my expertise. The firm has a deep commitment to advising on legal issues arising from the acquisition, management and investment of private capital. The move offers me the opportunity to expand further my practice with Harbottle & Lewis’s leading Private Capital practice and the other areas of the firm for which it is renowned including technology, media and entertainment.”
