Jonathan is a Lawyer in the Property and Construction team at Moores

Whether it’s helping clients to start on the right foot, overcome obstacles along the way or resolve a messy dispute, Jonathan loves nothing more than to get alongside a client and help them in achieving their mission. Working with commercial, for-purpose and not-for-profit clients, Jonathan’s practice focuses on property, governance, regulatory compliance and dispute resolution matters.

He brings extensive experience in the not-for-profit sector, having served with several charities including founding and leading the William Wilberforce Foundation as CEO. A passion for enabling the for-purpose space to exceed in what it does led him to undertake a Juris Doctor at Macquarie University.

A big believer in community and making a positive difference in our world, Jonathan puts this into action, volunteering at the Eastern Community Legal Centre, serving as Chair of the William Wilberforce Foundation, running a dads group for new dads in his community and coordinating an annual conference encouraging emerging leaders to make a difference in our world.

Why Moores?

"The opportunity to help good grow.  Having spent many years working in the not-for-profit and charity space, I love supporting work that impacts lives."

Between being a Dad and a dedicated Liverpool FC fan, Jonathan and the wee hours of the morning see a lot of each other. Lucky he loves finding and enjoying Melbourne’s best coffees!
