Jonathan Flattery

Partner - Occupier's and Public Liability
» Back To Department

Jonathan Flattery is a Partner at Express Solicitors, forming part of the Occupier’s and Public Liability team headed up by Partner, Daniel Slade. Within the team, Jonathan specialises in product liability and holiday cases.

When asked what he enjoys most about his role at Express, Jonathan explained: “I enjoy getting justice for people who have been injured through no fault of their own. I particularly like to work on cases where there has been liability disputes or court litigation”.

Jonathan is recognised for his ability to bring claims to a swift conclusion, something which his clients have put on record as being a strength: ‘I know individuals who have had to stop working due to serious injury or illness needing compensation as soon as possible, because they may be suffering a significant shortfall in earnings from what they were previously used to’.

Before joining Express Solicitors, Jonathan completed a Law degree at the University of Leicester. He has also gained an LPC from BPP Manchester.

Whats covered by a claim in Court

Jonathan is passionate about football and a fervent Manchester United supporter, and also plays a bit himself. He likens himself to Brian ‘Choccy’ Mclair: not the most mobile of players but can spray it around a bit.

A naturally inquisitive person, Jonathan believes if you ‘ask a question and you’ll appear ignorant for a few moments… don’t ask and you’ll be ignorant forever’. This is never more important when working in the fast changing ambit of Product Liability Law.

However, Jonathan is rarely the one asking the questions when conversations turns to cinema. He boasts an encyclopaedic knowledge of all types of films and is naturally a first pick when assembling quiz teams to represent Express Solicitors in competitions.
