Zahrah Fakim joins The Jonathan Lea Network

We welcome Zahrah Fakim to The Jonathan Lea Network team as one of our new self-employed consultant solicitors.

Zahrah is a Corporate & Commercial Solicitor specialising in corporate finance (including SEIS & EIS investment rounds), mergers & acquisitions, commercial contracts, terms & conditions and privacy policies and general company law advisory work. She also has good commercial property experience.

Jonathan, Managing Director of The Jonathan Lea Network, said “Zahrah was previously one of our first employees and during her 18 months at the firm we experienced an almost six-fold increase in turnover. Since working at a London based law firm for the last year we are very pleased Zahrah has now re-joined us, this time as one of our experienced self-employed consultant solicitors. We look forward to working with Zahrah again.”

Zahrah says “having gained invaluable experience in corporate and commercial legal work with small and medium sized businesses during my first spell at the Jonathan Lea Network, I am excited at the prospect of working with the team again. I look forward to contributing the skills I have gained in the City to the JLN practice, which has continued to grow its client base and capabilities in the field of business law.”

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.
