Jonathan Wright, Partner, Real Estate

Jonathan Wright, Partner, Real Estate, Fieldfisher

I am a partner in our real estate team with a practice that advises a mix of investment, development and occupier clients. I also have a particular interest in renewable energy and have a number of clients in that sector.

I have particular expertise in complex development projects advising developers and landowners on both commercial and residential schemes, and large corporate occupiers in acquiring space in development schemes. I acted for the main funder on the original financing of the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. I also acted on one of the first PFI/PPP projects in the UK healthcare sector - advising a US company on the property and construction aspects of a new diagnostic treatment centre.

I have acted for many years for clients in the food, retail and industrial sectors, helping them manage and grow their property estates.

I have been ranked in Chambers UK since 2014, with the 2015 edition describing me as being ""incredibly pragmatic" and as "the guy who can explain things to me on my level, managing to make it simple and present a realistic strategy that is attractive to both parties.""

I have been a member of the Investment Property Forum since 2007 and have lectured at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors on the subject of Overage in the context of property development.

In my spare time, when my children are not keeping me busy, I am involved in some charitable causes and play guitar. I continue to play football regularly, and enjoy watching football of a better standard at Liverpool FC
