More Information:

Jonathan, a pivotal partner at Torkin Manes, dedicates his legal expertise solely to the domain of construction law. His clientele is diverse, encompassing general contractors, entities both public and private, sureties, subcontractors, suppliers, financial institutions, and design professionals.

At the heart of Jonathan's legal practice are construction disputes and the pursuit of claims or defenses, alongside handling surety bond matters. His approach often involves alternative dispute resolution methods, though he is also well-versed in representing clients at both trial and appellate levels.

Further extending his proficiency, Jonathan adeptly manages the crafting, reviewing, and dissecting of various construction-related documents. This encompasses general and trade contracts, along with agreements for architectural and engineering services, subcontracts, and contracts pertaining to supply, transportation, manufacturing, and even cannabis facility construction. His regular activities include drafting both custom and standardized construction contracts, consulting on the likes of CCDC, OAA, and CCA agreements, and guiding clients through the intricacies of contractual responsibilities, risk mitigation, and contract management.

Jonathan’s rich experience also includes advocacy for contractors and homeowners embroiled in residential construction disputes, as well as the creation of contract documents for residential projects. He adeptly navigates proceedings under the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act (Tarion), engaging with the License Appeal Tribunal and mediating New Home Warranty claims.

Beyond his practice, Jonathan enriches the legal community through his role as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Queen’s University, where he imparts his knowledge on Canadian Construction Law to aspiring legal professionals.

His academic and professional journey is underlined by his membership in the Ontario Bar since 2006, a Bachelor of Laws from Queen’s University acquired in 2005, and a Bachelor of Arts from McGill University, earned in 2000. Through his comprehensive legal endeavors and commitment to education, Jonathan stands as a distinguished figure in the field of construction law.
