Author Brightstone Law LLP

Our Senior Partner, Jonathan Newman, has been named in The Power List 2024 by Bridging & Commercial magazine.

With only 40 industry professionals recognised by the prestigious list, achieving a place is a significant achievement and it’s testament to Jonathan’s contribution to specialist lending sector over more than 30 years, as well as his outstanding work in the last 12 months.

In particular, the Bridging & Commercial feature recognised Jonathan’s work on a recent case in which Brightstone Law, on behalf of a second charge lender, took on a major high street brand.

This case was a big win for the specialist finance sector, demonstrating that the brand name of an institutional lender is no guarantee of integrity of action and showing that tenacity, perseverance, expertise and experience are key to successful litigation.

These are all qualities that Jonathan exhibited in winning this ‘David v Goliath’ case, and that he continues to demonstrate in representing the interests of his clients and the industry as a whole.
