He advises private and listed companies, investors, fund managers, not-for-profits and individual directors across a broad range of sectors, including biotechnology, energy, financial services, ICT, manufacturing, payment solutions, private equity, professional services and venture capital. Jonathan’s depth of experience has led to his recognition in publications including The Legal 500 Asia Pacific, Chambers Asia Pacific, Asialaw Profiles, and Doyle’s Guide.
Previously a partner with both Maddocks and Freehills, Jonathan joins Keypoint from Linchpin Legal, where he was a Director.
Commenting on Jonathan’s appointment, Keypoint CEO Warren Kalinko said:
“Jonathan’s joining, along with that of Richard Hobson and Corinne Attard over the past couple of weeks, represents exciting milestones for Keypoint in two respects. First, it underscores the growing strength of Keypoint’s corporate team and in the depth of our corporate law offering to clients. Second, it reflects solid growth in Keypoint’s Melbourne practice. Our firm’s ability to attract senior lawyers of the calibre of Jonathan, Richard and Corinne speaks volumes about Keypoint’s capabilities, and our potential to become a significant player in the Australian legal market. We are delighted to welcome Jonathan to our firm.”
Commenting on his decision to join the firm, Jonathan said:
