I’m Jonathan, a Solicitor at Bristows.

I’m originally from Northern Ireland and was educated at a grammar school in Belfast. I moved to England in 2010 to study my law degree before completing a training contract at Allen & Overy. After qualification, I joined Marks & Clerk Law before moving to Bristows in January 2022. I practice primarily in patent litigation with a focus on life sciences and have higher rights of audience.

I moved to London and started my legal career with very few contacts in the industry. I understand the daunting task this poses. As I began to get to know the industry I met a number of very helpful individuals that provided me with invaluable advice and guidance. I’m very happy to pay their time and advice forward to those that come behind me.

For me, the legal industry and the experience for our clients is enhanced by being served by a diverse legal team. Each individual brings their own experience and, ultimately, their own angle through which to approach issues of legal advice. This variety of approaches strengthens our analysis, helps clients and promotes a more enjoyable working environment.

I am very happy to help anyone interested in beginning a career in law. Whatever your background, if you have the drive to make it happen, I’d love to be a part of your journey.
