Leading property litigation barrister joins Serle Court


Serle Court is delighted to announce that leading property litigation barrister Jonathan Upton has joined Chambers

Jonathan’s cases invariably involve land and property but span commercial, company, fraud, trust and insolvency law disputes and related professional negligence. Jonathan is acknowledged as a leading practitioner in the fields of restrictive covenants, rights to light and other easements, leasehold enfranchisement, tenants’ rights of first refusal, right to manage and service charges. Jonathan is particularly experienced on matters relating to mixed-use developments. His cases regularly involve large group litigation. In addition, Jonathan is frequently instructed in relation to joint ventures, overage, contracts for sale, options, injunctions, specific performance, co-ownership disputes and orders for sale.

Jonathan is ranked in the Chambers UK Bar 2024 Guide for Real Estate Litigation and is recognised in The Legal 500 London Bar for Property Litigation. In the latter, commentators describe him as ““The perfect package for complex and hard-fought property litigation, Jonathan is both technically brilliant and a creative advocate.”

Having worked across all levels of courts and tribunals up to the Supreme Court, Jonathan is very experienced at providing representation and advice to clients across many of Serle Court’s core practice areas. Jonathan also has experience of representing parties in arbitration and mediation.

Jonathan commented, “I am excited to be joining the brilliant barristers at Serle Court, who are undoubtedly leaders in their fields, and to be strengthening the property team which already has an excellent reputation.”

Chambers Director, Kathryn Purkis says, “We are delighted to have Jonathan join us at Serle Court. His impressive practice will complement our notable presence in the sphere of property law”.

Jonathan’s appointment demonstrates Serle Court’s commitment to strengthening its property expertise and ensuring that it offers its clients counsel of the highest quality and capability across the full range of its practice.
