He has over 25 years’ experience in corporate and commercial work and advises clients on general corporate legal advice. He has particular expertise in securities offering including IPOs (AIM, UK Official List and Toronto Stock Exchange). Jonathan acts regularly for both companies and their nominated advisors and brokers.

Over the years Jonathan has been involved in a significant number of cross-border transactions and he is one of the leading medical cannabis lawyers in the UK.

Relevant experience includes advising:

  • Several financings and acquisitions in the natural resources sector, including by way of a prospectus offering.
  • The sale and purchase of a number of insurance brokers, insurance companies and associated businesses.
  • A number of placings and other fundraisings by listed companies, whether acting for the company or the nomad/broker or lender.
  • A number of projects in the medical marijuana and CBD field, both M&A/financings and regulatory/advisory.
  • Several "reverse takeovers", principally involving AIM-listed companies.
  • A takeover offer in the clinical research sector.
  • Two secondary placings by shareholders of an AIM company.
  • Two Takeover Code offers by Canadian bidders.
  • Two reductions of capital by AIM-listed clients.
  • The financing to construct a five-star hotel in Sierra Leone.
  • Several investments by an overseas real estate client.
  • Various issues under the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

Jonathan has been described in Legal 500 UK as "solutions-oriented", and is recommended in the 2020 edition for both M&A deals up to £50 million and for Equity Capital Markets (Small-Mid Cap).

Chambers ranks Jonathan individually in Band 4 for Capital Markets: AIM (UK-wide) and states: “Jonathan Deverill offers broad experience in corporate matters, frequently advising companies and brokers on admission to AIM. A source comments that "he has encyclopaedic technical knowledge".

Jonathan has a first in law from Downing College, Cambridge and joined DAC Beachcroft in April 2015. Prior to joining DAC Beachcroft Jonathan spent the first nine years of his career at Slaughter and May and, amongst other things, worked for three and a half years in the London office of Canadian firm Stikeman Elliott.

In addition, Jonathan is a former member of the Legal Committee of the Quoted Companies Alliance, and speaks regularly on topics of interest in the corporate/commercial legal field. He leads the firm's Canadian and Medical Cannabis/CBD Desks. He is also a member of DAC Beachcroft's German Desk.
