For more than 30 years, Jonathan has built a reputation for managing complex and difficult disputes. A firm believer that a Court is not the only, and often not the best way to resolve a dispute, Jonathan works hard to understand what it is clients are seeking to achieve.

He provides advice not only on how to go about it, but also what the likelihood is of success.

Significant matters

  • Against advice from 2 QC’s that the client would lose, Jonathan undertook a Supreme Court action himself and won, saving the client several million dollars.
  • Successfully ran several cases all relating to the same family dispute involving companies and trusts, and was then able to favourably settle the dispute.
  • Had a Supreme Court decision overturned and then won at re-trial where negligent engineering of a ship was claimed against our client.
  • Ran, without counsel, a series of connected VCAT, Supreme Court and Magistrates Court disputes against a builder who claimed a joint venture over a development.
