Jon has over 30 years’ experience as a barrister, specialising in criminal cases in his formative years (prosecution and defence). Jon has for many years undertaken work in a broad range of areas. He now specialises largely in civil litigation and family (private law) cases. Jon has represented a number of ‘high value’ clients in financial remedy proceedings. He also has extensive experience in private law Children Act matters.
