Within these sectors, he maintains a broad practice across international commercial, construction and investment treaty arbitration. Domestically, he also has experience of resolving disputes by way of litigation, adjudication and mediation.

In the investment treaty sphere, Jonathan has experience of disputes under the ICSID and UNCITRAL arbitration rules and has assisted both investors and respondent States, making him familiar with the unique pressures placed on each party.
