Jonathan is drawn to practising law for the constant challenges it presents, how it develops his critical thinking and allows him to learn new things every day.

He is interested in corporate law and is excited to play a role in future transactions at Davies.

Why did you choose Davies?

Davies is a leader in business law across the country and it was important for me to join a firm that prides itself on excellence. I was able to make connections with many people and I immediately felt the warm and welcoming environment that is promoted at the firm. The combination of both made joining Davies an obvious decision.

What are the essential qualities of a good lawyer?

Sound judgment and listening are qualities that go hand in hand. Being able to listen to clients and dissect complex situations in order give advice of the highest level are essential skills to become a client’s trusted adviser and build long-lasting relationships.

Is there an organization that means a lot to you? How are you involved?

The Family Store. It plays a very important part in my community given that it provides food security. I have been volunteering since the age of 14. The importance of giving back to my community has been instilled in me from a young age and remains a core value in my life.
