Jonathan Sherman

Associate Solicitor - Corporate

What's your role?

My role is to work closely and collaboratively with clients to provide practical and straightforward advice that achieves agreed upon objectives. To effectively advise clients, I always take some time to understand how a client’s business operates within its particular sector. I also discuss with clients what the short and long terms goals of the business are to enable me to tailor my advice to assist with achieving these goals. I advise businesses across a number of different sectors and advise all types of business structures including partnerships, sole traders and limited companies.  

Your experience

I trained and qualified at a firm in Dorset before moving across the county border to join Coffin Mew in 2016. I have experience in advising small and medium sized businesses with a number of different types of transactions at all stages of the life of the business, for example:

  • forming the business;
  • preparing key corporate documents setting out the relationship between the various interested parties;
  • assisting with restructuring, investment into the business and financing as the business grows; and
  • advising on the sale of a business.


  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Company law advice
  • Articles of Association and Shareholders’ Agreements
  • Company formations
