SV Law Welcomes Associate Lawyer Jonathan Petit to the Guelph Office!

Jonathan Pettit crop (02414289xECE9C)
Jonathan Pettit


Jonathan brings a unique blend of technical, academic and practical skills to every file.  Before attending law school, Jonathan worked as a condominium law clerk, gaining valuable experience in the technical aspects of condominium development and governance.  While studying at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, Jonathan purposefully took courses that enhanced this existing skillset, which he then learned to apply in real-world situations during his summer and articling periods here at SV Law.

As a result, Jonathan provides his clients a holistic understanding of condominium law, combining both theory and practice to produce outstanding and cost-effective results.

Outside the office, you can often find Jonathan attending karate class, going for a run or enjoying a game of chess.
