About

Jonathan believes that access to justice is for everyone, and that lawyers are gatekeepers who play a crucial role in ensuring that this is available and achieveable for everyone. His goal is journey with others to rightly understand how the law impacts their daily lives and to work with them in resolving the situation they are in.

With training and experience in litigation and dispute resolution, Jonathan is well-acquainted with advocacy before all levels of court and is familiar with various dispute resolution processes, including “Alternative Dispute Resolution” (ADR) such as negotiation and mediation. He is also an Accredited Mediator under the Singapore Mediation Centre. This marks his commitment to holistic problem-solving through the practice of law, to bring about true reconciliation and resolve to matters that will best satisfy his clients’ interests and needs.

His practice areas includes both contentious and non-contentious matters, such as wills drafting, estate and inheritance planning, private client matters as well as general corporate advisory work, such as contract review and drafting. He also has experience working with statutory boards on a broad range of legal advisory matters.

Jonathan is conversant with both institutional and individual clients, and is agile in his approach to the conduct of cases so as to account for all aspects of his clients’ needs.

As part of his mission to make justice accessible to all, Jonathan regularly takes on pro bono and ‘low bono’ legal matters to represent the vulnerable and under-served communities in society, including providing advisory work to non-profit organisations, charities, and being a panel lawyer under the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (“CLAS”).

When he is not advocating in Court, Jonathan also invests his time in mentoring the younger generation both within the profession as mentor/module facilitator for the Singapore Bar Examinations and Prepatory Course, as well as in his other communities.
