Jonathan TR Silverman.

Prior to founding the firm in 1981 Jonathan trained at a leading city shipping practice, was a commercial assistant at Taylor & Humbert (now Taylor Wessing) and was appointed commercial partner at Alexanders (now Hunters) aged just 29.

He offers clients the benefit of his wide ranging legal and commercial experience, having served on the boards of public and several private companies operating in the fmcg, service and property sectors.

His aim is always to negotiate practical and pragmatic commercial solutions for clients.

Jonathan works with SMEs in developing their businesses, guiding them on their contractual relationships with suppliers, customers and key personnel.

He has successfully assisted clients to achieving AIM listings, negotiated trade sales and the transmission of family businesses to the next generation addressing structuring issues.

He frequently advises a number of overseas clients entering the UK market on their business strategy.

Through the firm’s membership of IPG he effects introductions for clients expanding overseas. In addition he advises a group of expatriates in the Balearics with UK interests and with private client issues.

Jonathan has been active in property regeneration, a founder of the Shoreditch Triangle and works with clients converting industrial units into studio retail and office space.

He manages a number of property holdings for clients with retail and commercial units.

Jonathan also works with businesses developing their franchise operations and on brand protection, management and licensing. He is a fellow of the Institute of Licensing Practitioners and a board member of IPAN which works with Government and academic bodies to advance the understanding of IP within the UK economy.

He writes regularly for Solicitors Journal and commentates on legal issues on BBC, Sky and a number of UK newspapers.

In recent years he has combined his passion for post war British sports cars with acting for clients buying and selling classic cars both in the UK and abroad. He has advised on a number of high profile off-market transactions (when they involved Jaguars he is even more delighted!)

Jonathan has a lifelong connection with the City, having attended the City of London School. He read for an LLB at Holborn College before studying at the College of Law. He is a Freeman, a member of Farringdon Ward Club and has stood for Common Council. He is an active member of the Old Citizens Entrepreneurs Club advising start-up businesses.

He has a keen interest in the growth of suburban London and the role played by post war property developers who shaped central London between 1950 -2000.
