About Jonathan

  • Biography

    Jonathan Brogden is a Partner with expertise in banking and finance disputes, Financial Services regulatory investigations and enforcement, civil and criminal fraud and financial crime. He frequently acts in complex high stakes and/or multi-party, multi-jurisdictional disputes which involve a combination of these complimentary areas of specialism. 

    Jonathan acts for financial institutions and sophisticated investors in relation to disputes concerning complex financial instruments, derivatives, wealth management, structured investments, corporate loan defaults, enforcement of security and recovery actions.

    He has a depth of experience in handling Financial Services regulatory investigations and enforcements and represents regulated entities and individuals faced with action taken by the FCA and PRA. He has acted for clients involved in investigations and enforcement actions concerning Market abuse (criminal and civil), benchmark manipulation, international sanctions and a variety of breaches of FSMA and Handbook rules. He has represented parties through RDC/EDMC and Upper Tribunal proceedings.

    Jonathan also defends corporates and individuals subjected to investigation and prosecution by the criminal authorities. This has included, by way of example, the high profile fraud/conspiracy charges pursued by the SFO in relation to LIBOR and EURIBOR, bribery and corruption, international sanctions, money laundering, fraud by false representation, immigration act offences, perverting the course of justice and fire arms offences.  He handles private prosecutions both as prosecution and defence counsel. 

    Fraud, both civil and criminal, comprises a significant part of the work Jonathan undertakes across the sectors he specialises in.    

    Much of Jonathan’s work has an international perspective and he frequently acts in co-counsel roles with foreign lawyers representing the interests of clients involved in multi-jurisdictional disputes, regulatory and criminal investigations and prosecutions. 

    Jonathan is, fundamentally, a litigator driven to achieve positive outcomes for his clients.    

    Jonathan is a committee member of the Fraud Lawyers Association, a member of the Private Prosecutors Association, the Financial Services Lawyers Association, the European Criminal Bar Association, and the London Solicitors Litigation Association.”
