About the presenters

Jonathan Lopian

Jonathan is a commercial chancery barrister with a litigation and advisory practice focused primarily on company, insolvency and commercial law.

His many reported cases include the high-profile administration of the Christmas hamper savings club Farepak Food & Gifts Limited and liquidation of the largest Greek mobile telephone operator Hellas II Telecommunications (Luxembourg) II SCA, and the important landmark Court of Appeal decisions in JCAM Commercial Real Estate Property XV Limited v Davis Haulage Limited, St Poulton’s Trustee v Ministry of Justice and Imageview Management Limited v Jack.

From 1999 to 2009 he was Junior Counsel to the Crown appointed by the Attorney-General, and acted in many reported cases for a wide range of government departments including the Department of Trade & Industry and HM Revenue & Customs.  

Chambers UK Bar and Legal 500 have recommended Jonathan for many years in the commercial chancery and insolvency practice areas. Described as “excellent – he’s very thorough and gets on top of difficult issues quickly”, he is said to be “admired by market sources as he is highly technically skilled”, “a highly commercial junior”, a “good, forceful litigator”, and a “tenacious” and “clear and compelling advocate”, who is “extremely approachable and user-friendly”.

Thomas Graham

Thomas is an enormously experienced and effective commercial chancery barrister who relishes the cut and thrust of the courtroom.

He has appeared in numerous cases in the Chancery Division, Commercial Court, Queen’s Bench Division and Court of Appeal, as well as in commercial arbitrations.

Thomas's core practice focuses on business disputes, in the commercial, company, insolvency and partnership fields.

His Commercial practice includes purely contractual disputes, e.g. arising from business sales or from commercial contracts, frequently with an intellectual property element.  He also handles fraud claims in a business context.

In Company law he has a particular strength in shareholder disputes, particularly minority shareholder actions (including for unfair prejudice) and share ownership disputes, and claims between companies and their directors, for breach of fiduciary duty, confidentiality and  contract.

Directory acknowledgements include:

"He is a fantastic advocate who has a very calm and collected approach but can turn up the heat when necessary."

Chambers UK Bar 2016

"Clients love him as he is easy to deal with and delivers the goods in court."
