Jonathan advises on a broad range of disputes affecting corporations including those arising in the acquisition and disposal of businesses and companies, the failure of joint ventures, claims arising out of the insolvency and reconstruction of corporate entities and fraud claims. In recent years much of his time has been spent leading teams handling multi-jurisdictional corruption cases and other criminal investigations by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO). He also advises on cartel investigations and related private damages claims.

Jonathan is listed as a leading individual for both commercial litigation and financial crime in Chambers 2018, which notes that Jonathan is "obviously incredibly able" as well as being praised by the market as a "shrewd and realistic litigator. He is adept at commercial litigation as well as possessing a strong SFO and cartel investigation practice" (Chambers 2017).
