Jonathan studied for his Law degree at the London School of Economics and, after qualifying as a solicitor, worked in the West End of London. Jonathan joined Goughs in 1986 and was made a Partner in 1987. During this time, Jonathan has acquired an enormous amount of expertise in dealing with civil litigation and family cases and this led to him sitting as a Deputy District Judge for some seven years.

As a senior member of Goughs Family Department Jonathan specialises in high value ancillary relief cases following on from the breakdown of a marriage. Jonathan also assists the Civil Litigation Department with cases involving disputes over the ownership of property, following the breakdown of a relationship.

Jonathan is also a fully qualified collaborative lawyer; this enables him to pursue the collaborative law approach to ancillary relief cases, which attempts to resolve disputes between the parties by round the table negotiations, rather than court proceedings.
