Jonathan is a Partner in the Development team.

Jonathan’s practice encompasses commercial and residential property, with an emphasis on commercial development work.  He assists clients with site acquisition, project finance, the negotiation of planning conditions, devising promotion agreements, aiding joint ventures and other collaborations, overseeing site assembly and facilitating onward disposal through freehold and leasehold sales.

Jonathan works with clients in the development of industrial and business parks, city centre hotels, large scale housing estates and student accommodation, sporting facilities, retail outlets and new corporate headquarters.

Acting primarily for regional and national landowners and development companies, he also advises commercial funders, private investors and landlords and tenants.

Recent examples of how Jonathan has supported clients include:

  • supporting accountancy firm Garbutt & Elliott in the relocation of their headquarters under a carefully structured arrangement to ensure a smooth relocation for this large regional practice;
  • providing strategic and legal advice to achieve a sale of agricultural land for £6.5 million on behalf of a landowner, working collaboratively with an adjoining property landowner to secure a planning permission for residential development; and
  • the acquisition, development, refinancing and freehold and leasehold disposals of the Rose Centre Business Park in York.
