Matt Moorton joins The Jonathan Lea Network team

We are excited to announce Matt Moorton has joined our retained team at our head office in Haywards Heath. Matt is another of our two-week work experience placement students who impressed us and we are thrilled to have him onboard as the second full-time paralegal we have hired in the last two months.

Working alongside our fee earners, Matt will gain a vast amount of experience across several practice areas.

Matt was an LPC LLM student at De Montfort University where he finished in September, before which he completed his Law LLB (Hons) degree at Coventry University. He has acquired a wide range of legal and customer service experience during his studies and is excited to have the opportunity to now show and advance his legal abilities and knowledge at our firm.

Jonathan, Managing Director of The Jonathan Lea Network, said “Matt joins the team at a very busy period where he will be assisting our fee earners on a wide range of matters across several practice areas. We have continued to grow our business throughout a difficult 2020 and after not furloughing any of the team and remaining available for our clients earlier in the year we have now picked up some decent momentum in the run up to Christmas. Despite entering another national lockdown, we remain positive, upbeat and are very pleased to have Matt onboard.”

Matt said “it’s a pleasure to be working here at The Jonathan Lea Network. Everyone has already made me feel very welcome. I am incredibly appreciative for this opportunity, especially at such challenging times, and it’s exciting to be part of a firm that continues to grow and develop rapidly.”

About Jonathan Lea

Jonathan is a specialist business law solicitor who has been practising for over 18 years, starting at the top international City firms before then spending some time at a couple of smaller practices. In 2013 he started working on a self-employed basis as a consultant solicitor, while in 2019 The Jonathan Lea Network became a SRA regulated law firm itself after Jonathan got tired of spending all day referring clients and work to other law firms.

The Jonathan Lea Network is now a full service firm of solicitors that employs senior and junior solicitors, trainee solicitors, paralegals and administration staff who all work from a modern open plan office in Haywards Heath. This close-knit retained team is enhanced by a trusted network of specialist consultant solicitors who work remotely and, where relevant, combine seamlessly with the central team.
