Call Jonathan

I’m an agricultural solicitor with over 30 years’ experience of advising farmers and landowners on a broad range of legal and property issues.

My particular specialism is in public and private rights of way and access to land. This is an area of practice rarely encountered in solicitors’ firms.

Within the legal directory, Legal 500, I am considered ‘an industry leader in his area of expertise’, ‘leaving no stones unturned’.

I have many interests and enthusiasms outside work, including choral singing, military history, collecting books (I’ve also written two books under a pen name), and cricket (including some ‘live’ BBC commentary). Much stage experience – appearing in over forty productions. I also enjoy after-dinner speaking, and am known for my bow ties.
