Jon East

Ignition Law are delighted to welcome Jon East to their team of lawyers who provide legal support for start-ups, scale-ups and entrepreneurs.

Jon is an experienced corporate/commercial lawyer who started his career in the corporate team at Eversheds in London before working as an in-house lawyer for almost 20 years. Jon has a recent track record in financial services having worked as Head of Legal for Jupiter Asset Management between 2007 and 2018. Prior to his time at Jupiter, Jon also held senior in-house legal positions with Rexam plc and Samsung Electronics. Most recently, he worked on an interim placement as corporate counsel for ERM.

Jon said: “I am looking forward to bringing the substantial experience I have gained from working in the legal teams of leading businesses in very different industries to assist the start-ups Ignition Law is working with. When working with clients, but especially ones with rapidly scaling businesses, in my experience it is critical to provide pragmatic, proactive legal advice and solutions and work as a true partner to help the business move on.”

Ignition Law co-founder Alex McPherson said: “Jon brings valuable financial services sector experience which aligns with many of the fintech start-ups we work with, as well as an experienced in-house eye. We are delighted to have someone of his seniority and calibre who is able to hit the ground running with our start-up clients.”
