Jonathan is highly experienced in litigation and was previously employed as a Special Counsel running an insurance litigation practice for 5 years in a mid-tier legal practice acting primarily for claimants and insurers.

He has litigated in Victoria, Queensland and in New South Wales.

He was in-house counsel for five years in the compulsory third party insurance business of NRMA.

Jonathan ran a litigation insurance portfolio at a medium tier firm where he acted on behalf of major insurance companies including Zurich Australia Insurance Ltd, NRMA and QBE Insurance. In a similar role with a larger practice, Jonathan worked with clients such as the Roads and Traffic Authority of NSW, Allianz Australia Insurance and ORICA Australia Ltd. He was a Partner at mid-tier claimant personal injury practice where he worked for nearly 8 years.

Any reference to a “Partner” means an employee with sufficient seniority. Longton Legal is an incorporated legal practice and not a partnership.
