Jonathon Holyhead


As a Solicitor in the Business team, I ensure I provide flexibility to my clients as to when and where I can meet them. I also provide a friendly and approachable service.

I love the diverse nature of my clients and the work I do for them. This can range from drafting commercial supplier contracts through to the acquisition of a business or incorporating a new company or drafting terms and conditions.

I have worked for various companies within their legal teams so this has given me the experience of knowing how companies work and has, therefore, given me a wide range of skills to help clients.

I am responsible for a range of commercial clients and I deal with a mixture of different matters. I also have experience in working on international sales agreements for clients and working with franchisor agreements.

I have worked for a range of educational institutions, including maintained schools, single academy trusts, multi-academy trusts, independent schools, and further and higher education institutions. I am able to offer practical advice in relation to any educational matter through my experience as not only a solicitor who has worked for 5 years in the educational sectors, but as a governor to a number of schools. I am also able to guide institutions through the complex legal issues offering practical and legal advice to them.

I've worked for a number of years as a volunteer for the Royal International Air Tattoo, which is hosted annually by the RAF. During this event, I work within the Guest Management Team and VIP Protocol team as a liaison and facilitator for the guests.

Outside of work, I love to spend time with my daughter, and I am enjoying being a father to a toddler! I also love to explore the Essex and Suffolk countryside with my dog. When time allows, I like to catch up with friends over dinner and drinks.
