Jonathan is developing a broad practice across chambers’ areas of work including international arbitration, public international law, shipping and commercial law.
Prior to moving to the bar, Jonathan advised or acted for States and investors in investment treaty arbitrations, under the ICSID and UNCITRAL Rules, and companies in international commercial arbitrations under the ICC and LCIA Rules. He initially qualified as a solicitor in Australia, practising in commercial litigation at Clayton Utz before working as an associate to Justice Susan Crennan AC of the High Court of Australia. Jonathan was also a senior associate at Hogan Lovells in London, specializing in investment treaty arbitration, public international law and international arbitration. In that position he built on the experience he obtained working for Professor James Crawford (now Judge Crawford of the International Court of Justice), and completing a doctorate on international dispute settlement under Professor Crawford’s supervision at the University of Cambridge.
