Jon joined Ellisons in April 2017 as a Partner within the Corporate and Commercial team specialising in private equity, banking and secured lending work.
Prior to joining Ellisons, Jon qualified and worked in the North West of England before relocating to East Anglia in 2012 to join a leading regional firm where he joined the partnership in May 2013.
Jon read law at Magdalene College, Cambridge and obtained a distinction in the LPC from the College of Law in York.
Jon enjoys sailing on the East Coast and cycling. He was also the founding member (and now lapsed member due to relocation!) of the Wirral Ukulele Orchestra.
Jon Bloor is an exceptional individual who has the ability to review and explain a technical document in a way that is easy to understand.
We appointed Ellisons to advise on the trade sale to JUST Inc. We were delighted with the quality of the support and timely advice we have received from Jon Bloor from the initial discussions at the HoT’s stage to the tough negotiations agreeing the SPA. Jon was super at focusing on the areas that mattered most. I was equally impressed with Paul Forsyth stepping in at a late stage to cover for Jon’s leave with the quality of service being seemless. I very much long forward to working with Jon and Paul again on another M&A transaction.
Corporate and Commercial Client
Having Jon Bloor available at the end of the phone to discuss legal matters at short notice made the process so much easier for us.
Jon Bloor provides excellent quality advice and is extremely pragmatic and relaxed but focused on finding solutions. He is great to work with as solutions are often a compromise between legal and commercial considerations, and therefore client and lawyer working together. Jon is very good at this.
