Jonathan arrives from Shoosmiths where he was a partner in the firm’s Southampton office and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Boyes Turner Dispute Resolution team.

Acting on behalf of UK and international corporates, Jonathan has worked on numerous high value and complex claims in relation to various types of contentious matters, including warranty claims (where he advised the successful claimant in the case of Ageas v Kwik-Fit and AIG), and other issues arising out of corporate transactions, IT disputes, fraud and misuse of confidential information. Jonathan’s pensions litigation practice sees him advising both employers and scheme trustees on the full range of contentious pensions issues. His most recent reported case is Shannan v Viavi Solutions UK Ltd and others, where he represented the company.

Jonathan is top ranked as one of the South’s leading litigators by Chambers Guide to the UK Legal Profession and is recommended in The UK Legal 500. Chambers comments that “The excellent Jonathan Grigg has a superb reputation in the market with sources mentioning that he has a good legal brain but is also really commercial. He often acts in multi-million pound contractual and professional negligence claims.”

Commenting on the appointment Andrew Chalkley, Boyes Turner’s CEO said:

Jonathan’s arrival will further strengthen the firm’s top ranked (in The UK Legal 500) Dispute Resolution team by adding a pensions litigation capability to our existing specialist property, construction, IT and product liability litigation services. His arrival along with a number of partner and senior hires this year continues our investment in providing the very best legal services in the region. Further senior hires are expected in the coming months.
