Jonathan Cohen was appointed QC in the 2016 round at just 38 years old. He is one of the preeminent barristers in his fields of practice. He is annually ranked by the Chambers & Partners directory as a leading QC in both commercial litigation and employment law and was nominated by that directory as employment junior of the year in both 2013 and 2015. In the 2014 and 2015 editions, where he is placed in band 1 (the top 10 juniors in the country), he is described as:

“One of the leading juniors at the Bar…a great tactician and a highly skilled advocate. He is also fabulous in front of clients and oozes authority”.

and

“Universally praised for his exceptional skill in court and….his magisterial delivery”.

He has a mixed commercial litigation and employment law practice with a particular expertise in applications for all forms of interim and injunctive relief, as well as litigation arising from fraud and breach of fiduciary duty. He was educated at Manchester Grammar School and Oxford University. He was called in 1999 and joined Littleton Chambers in 2007. He is the author of the civil fraud chapter in Serious Economic Crime, published by the Serious Fraud Office in 2011.

He has appeared in some of the highest profile litigation of recent years, including the Tullett Prebon v BGC blockbuster financial services dispute, the JSC BTA Bank v Ablyazov banking fraud and in the Supreme Court in Van-Winkelhof v Clyde & Co, establishing that LLP members enjoy a right of protection as whistleblowers.

Jonathan has been recommended as a leading junior in the leading legal directories for some years. A selection of recent comments from those directories include:

“everything you want from a barrister; excellent on his feet, good with clients and responsive. In court he is determined, strong and gets to the point quickly”

“A fearless and analytical advocate, loved by clients”

Described by his opponents as “knowing the law” and “extremely persuasive”

“a tough advocate”

“receiving nothing but good reports” 

“has dogged determination and fine cross-examination skills”

He has a reputation for combining powerful advocacy with strong legal skills and a commercial and cost sensitive approach to litigation.
