London, United Kingdom
Jonathan is a partner at the firm Seth Lovis & Co solicitors and head of the Commercial and Property departments. He also heads the firm’s Professional Negligence team.
His work principally involves commercial litigation often with a property bias. He acts for commercial landlords and tenants, businesses large and small and individuals.
Jonathan joined Seth Lovis & Co shortly after its foundation in 2000, previously undertaking commercial and property litigation at a medium-sized west end firm.
Jonathan is approachable, pragmatic and commercially minded and applies these qualities to his litigation work. He has been described as a ‘no nonsense’ and ‘tenacious’ litigator but recognises sometimes a softer touch is required.
Jonathan’s view is that a full analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of a dispute is essential at the outset. This will often determine the course of action his clients should take. He will not hesitate to recommend immediate court action and aggressive litigation where required but will equally advise early settlement or ADR if more appropriate.
Jonathan values his clients and their loyalty. He encourages a strong client care ethic across the departments, encouraging his teams to listen to their clients, understand their needs and make no assumptions about their objectives. He recognises the importance of communication and managing client expectations.
“Jonathan Tyler was recommended to us by our Counsel. His approach has been one of utmost professionalism, but at the same time, adopting an "always approachable" methodology. As a client, we consider that to be a huge source of help and comfort, when dealing with and navigating the best route to a satisfactory conclusion in the matters of Litigation.”
“For any small business, this firm does exactly what they say they will do and when they will do it. I have over 8 years’ experience dealing with Mr Tyler and all the advice given has been first class. Mr Tyler and his team deliver a high level of service and Mr Tyler’s success rate for my company has been 100%.”
“What I have liked about Jonathan and his team is that very quickly they understand the situation and position we should take. In fact, one could say they have an innate "streetwise" manner about them. They have already worked out the score before you do. They are amiable, personable and on your side. However, for those on the other side - they are slick, sharp operators, ones to watch out for. I recommend them thoroughly and give them all my business matters.”
“I honestly cannot fault Jonathan Tyler at all. He is completely leaps and bounds ahead of the rest.”
“Jonathan combines great knowledge and expertise with common sense and commercial reality. He has acted for us on several occasions and his advice and service has always been excellent. I would highly recommend Jonathan to anyone who wants a professional but personal service”.
“I found Jonathan to be very reliable, knowledgeable and experienced and he managed to get me a settlement 3 times the amount I anticipated.”
"We really appreciate your support and help with this matter. Time and time again you keep coming through for us."
