The principal solicitor is Jonathan de Vere Tyndall. He is admitted to practise as a solicitor and barrister of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and the High Court of Australia. Jonathan is a member of the Law Society of New South Wales and the New South Wales Bar Association.

The University of New South Wales awarded him a Master of Laws degree, in Corporate, Commercial and Taxation law in 1994. Prior to this he completed his education at Sydney Church of England Grammar School (Shore) and Newington College.

Jonathan is experienced and has been a practising lawyer for more than 22 years. He was in practice as a barrister for 16 of those years, prior to becoming a solicitor. He started as a junior barrister in Edmund Barton Chambers (Level 44 MLC Centre, Sydney) in 1992 under the separate tutorships of an eminent family law master and also a commercial law master.

His successful legal articles as the 'Bush Barrister' column were published by Rural Press and several regional newspapers over many years. Jonathan previously worked in the securities industry in takeovers and acquisitions, and prior to that time as a publisher in London and a journalist in Argentina. He has lived in and travelled extensively to the United Kingdom, the Caribbean, South America and the USA. He is a registered migration agent.

Jonathan has contributed over many years to pro bono causes and to isolated or socially disadvantaged people who lack economic resources.

We seek to advance and protect your interests as client to the best of our skill and diligence, uninfluenced by any personal views of you or your activities, and regardless of any threatened unpopularity or criticism of this firm and always in accordance with the law. Judgment is for the Court to deliver, not this law practice.
