WWL Ranking: Recommended

WWL says

Jonathan Midgley is a standout practitioner with extensive experience defending white-collar professionals, and has many notable cases in his portfolio.

Biography

Jonathan Midgley has practised as a criminal defence lawyer for over three decades.

In the early 1980s, Jonathan was involved in the very first commercial crime prosecution brought in Hong Kong. He was retained by the defendant, who was acquitted at trial.

White-collar crime, from those early beginnings, has been an important part of Jonathan’s practice. His work also involves a wide range of offences, from the very minor to the most serious, spanning dangerous drugs, assault, theft, robbery, sex offences, driving cases, murder and rape.

An additional part of Jonathan’s practice is the defence of Commercial Crime Bureau (CCB) prosecutions. It has also meant the frequent defence against allegations of money laundering and the freezing of bank accounts.

Jonathan has always considered it important for a criminal defence solicitor to have experience as an advocate. He has appeared at every level of Hong Kong criminal courts. In 2013 he was honoured to be one of only two criminal defence solicitors to be made solicitor advocate, with the right to appear in the criminal High Court.

Over the years, Jonathan has built up a strong relationship with barristers in both Hong Kong and London and can call upon them for speedy and effective support.

Jonathan considers himself fortunate in the recognition that he has received in the criminal law directories published over the years.

Jonathan still finds criminal defence work exhilarating and looks forward to the future.
