Jonathan Collings

“I see my role as that of a problem solver.  There is always a story to tell and it is my role to identify the issues and work towards a viable solution.”

Jonathan has a broad commercial and civil litigation practice where he has garnered experience addressing all manners of disputes affecting individuals and corporations; from estates tugs-of-war to defamation actions to negligence actions and construction matters.  He has particular experience in the areas of defamation, libel and slander, and employment law.  No matter the area of law, Jonathan consistently works diligently with his clients to broker an appropriate solution and if required, to proceed to trial.

Jonathan deals with litigation matters in Ottawa, as well as Lanark County (Perth, Smiths Falls) and Renfrew County (Pembroke, Renfrew).  He has appeared before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Divisional Court and Provincial Court on a wide range of matters. Jonathan has also appeared before the Assessment Review Board, Ontario Labour Relations Board, the License Appeal Tribunal and the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal.  He joined Low Murchison Radnoff LLP in 2010 before which he worked at a boutique litigation firm with a focus on commercial litigation, employment law and wrongful dismissal.

Jonathan is a member of several professional organizations, including the County of Carleton Law Association, the County of Lanark Law Association, the Ontario Bar Association, the Renfrew County Law Association and the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA). Outside of law, his community involvement includes volunteer activities and culinary tourism.  He also serves as a judge at both the National and International Finals of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, which is the largest moot court competition in the world for law students.
