Jonathan joined Joelson as a trainee in September 2018 after receiving a 2:1 in his law degree from the University of Cambridge and a Commendation in the LPC from BPP Law School in Holborn. Prior to embarking on his legal career, Jonathan spent 10 years working in the fine wine and hospitality industry as a consultant, restaurant manager, sommelier and educator to both high net worth individuals and drinks companies.
Jonathan started his training with the firm in the Licensing, Gambling and Regulatory team, spent his second seat in the Property team and currently works in the Corporate team.
In his spare time Jonathan plays a lot of cricket and is a member of Middlesex County Cricket Club, enjoys fine food and drink and attempts to travel to new and varied countries on a regular basis. On occasion he teaches both professionals and non-professionals about Japanese Sake (he speaks Japanese having previously completed a degree at SOAS, University of London).
“It has been a great pleasure working with the team at Joelson. In my experience they have a uniquely smart and creative approach to business structuring and transactions, alongside consummate professionalism and a great sensitivity to the needs of Founders and other stakeholders. I’d say working with Joelson significantly enhances the chances of completing a transaction with a good outcome.”
