Q: What can possibly go wrong?

Jonathan has acted successfully in relation to a wide range of commercial deals and disputes. He combines attention to detail with an ability to understand the bigger picture and associated strategic subtleties.   

The range of commercial work undertaken is diverse. Many projects have been connected with the entertainment and IT industries but other work has included manufacture and distribution, import and export, retail, construction and deal-related finance.  

Jonathan has provided professional advice and assistance with the planning, negotiation and documentation of over 350 IP, IT and other deals across 125 countries.  In consequence, he has drafted and negotiated a full range of commercial documents, which have consistently proved their integrity in court and in the field. These include:

  • Joint-venture agreements
  • Confidentiality
  • IP licensing, including software
  • Manufacturing and distribution agreements
  • Loan and convertible loan agreements
  • Business transfers/Asset transfers
  • Research and development agreements
  • IP acquisitions
  • Agency and representation agreements
  • SEIS/EIS funding arrangements

Whatever the complexity, whatever the value of the transaction in hand, the documents should work like clockwork:  in law, in practice and in the face of wanted and unwanted developments.

We provided documents that work. We provide documents that are as simple as possible, as complicated as necessary. An efficient service providing sound advice and bespoke documents…

…drafted in plain English.
