The Jonathan Lea Network hosted the HHBA Networking Night

The Jonathan Lea Network hosted the HHBA Networking Night

We were delighted to have an almost full turnout for the Haywards Heath Business Association (HHBA) Networking Event, hosted at our offices recently. With music from resident DJ, Senior Dispute Resolution Solicitor, Kent Reynolds, the wine was flowing and great conversations were held between local businesses and contacts throughout Mid Sussex.

An impromptu auction was held to raise funds for St Peter & St James Hospice as one HHBA member Warrick Francis of Newman Thomson Print Media is bravely skydiving in the coming few weeks to raise funds for this worthy cause. Robert Carpenter of Management Inspirations expertly sold off two pairs of 2 tickets to Tulley’s Farm ShocktoberFest for a total sum of £185 which has gone towards Warrick’s fundraising efforts this month.

We gathered and held a minute’s silence for Her Majesty The Queen, by way of a tribute to her impressive career and dedication to her country for the entirety of her reign.

Take a look below at some of our photos and videos from the night; we all agreed it was the beginning of something good, that we would look to recreate again later in the year!

With thanks to the HHBA for allowing us to host their event, it was a very enjoyable evening with many successful and valuable discussions taking place throughout the night.


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.
