Richard has written extensively and has spoken across the province at a variety of courses, seminars and conferences about condominium issues.  He is passionate about condominium education.  He readily volunteers his time to increase awareness among condominium unit owners in the belief that an engaged and informed approach will serve to better manage community-based conflict and will help build stronger condominium communities.

Jonathan Wright


Speaker Bio:

Elia Associates

Jonathan practises in all areas of post-development condominium law, with a particular interest and expertise in commercial and construction litigation in the context of a condominium. Jonathan considers himself to be incredibly intelligent, hardworking and diligent, and one day hopes to convince his colleagues that he is all of these things.  

Jonathan left the shores of Northern Ireland in 2009 with a law degree in one hand and a pot of gold and his lucky charms in the other. Exuding all the charms and wit of an Irishman, Jonathan takes a pragmatic long term approach to litigation and works hard at building long term relationships formulated on trust and respect with his clients.

Coming from Northern Ireland, Jonathan has a deep love for the beautiful game (and also his wife and daughter) and following the mantra of ‘those that can’t do, teach’ Jonathan, having hung up his soccer boots, enjoys coaching youth soccer, although admittedly, he is living vicariously through the kids he coaches.  In the winter months, Jonathan can be found questioning why he left the (ever so slightly) warmer climate of Northern Ireland and trying to avoid injury on various ski hills.
