A partner in Colin Biggers & Paisley's insurance team since 2013, Jonathan is highly sought after by his clients, which include insurers in both the Australian and London markets, for his expertise in handling complex claims. 

Since being admitted as a solicitor, Jonathan directed his attention towards the construction and financial services industries. He enjoys the challenge of mastering the intricacies of each of these specialist disciplines.

Jonathan runs a leading practice in construction and infrastructure disputes, acting for contractors and design professionals and managing claims under project insurance policies. He acts for insurers in the defence of professional service providers and firms on contentious insurance coverage disputes and large scale and contentious directors and officers matters. 

Jonathan is regularly retained by leading construction professional indemnity insurers for defence and coverage and monitoring instructions. In recent times, he has been at the forefront of legal actions arising from the cladding crisis. 

A go-to lawyer on large scale claims, Jonathan's practice extends to coverage and defence of shareholder class actions and he has been deeply involved in some of the most substantial litigation in that space in recent years. 

Jonathan has been recognised in the 2020 to 2025 editions of The Best Lawyers in Australia as a leading Professional Malpractice Litigation Lawyer and in Doyle's Guide 2020 and 2022 as a recommended Professional Indemnity Lawyer in New South Wales. He was also recognised in ExpertGuides for Insurance and Reinsurance in 2020. 

Jonathan holds a Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws. He was admitted to practice in 2003.

Prior to practising law, Jonathan worked in risk management for one of the largest ski resorts in the United States. 

Jonathan is a passionate skier and avid traveller, both of which are now done with his young children in tow. Those children are of limited assistance in his wine collecting.
