Jonathan holds an honours law degree from the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom and completed the legal practitioners course for the purposes of becoming an English solicitor in June of 2002. Between June 2002 and September 2004 he was engaged in a training contract with the London firm of H Montlake and Company where he gained experience and training in all aspects of the law and in particular residential property, commercial property, probate law, intellectual property and employment law. Having completed the training contract Jonathan was admitted to the Solicitors Roll of England and Wales on 1st to the bar in St Lucia in February, 2005. Jonathan brings a new dimension to the firm in that whereas all the other lawyers at McNamara & Co (and indeed over 99 per cent of the lawyers in St Lucia) have been trained as barristers he has qualified as an English solicitor. Because the profession in St Lucia is fused he will practise as a solicitor, barrister and Notary Royal. His current portfolio at McNamara & Co also includes overseeing some of the High Court legal action commenced by the firms banking clients, including defending actions, seizure of property debt collection as well as conveyancing.
