Jonathan Leitch

Business Owner & Principal Solicitor

Jonathan is the owner and founder of JB Leitch Ltd, involved in all aspects of the business.

Jonathan established the firm in 1997 with a commercial litigation specialism. Over time, opportunities arose to handle contentious residential leasehold cases.
