About Me

Gregory Jones

I was educated at Pelham Road Primary School and then at Colfe’s School run by the Leathersellers’ Livery Company.  I went to New College, Oxford and University College, London.  I was  called to the bar at Lincoln’s Inn. I practise at the bar within this ward at Francis Taylor Building, Temple where I am also a member of Inner Temple.  I am a freeman of the City of London and a Liveryman of the Leathersellers’ Company  where I serve on the Estates’ Committee and as a school governor of the Leathersellers’ Federation of Schools having previously served as Leathersellers’ appointed governor of Colfe’s School.  Upon election as Alderman I have accepted the post of Aldermanic Governor at Christ’s Hospital School. I am also a liveryman of the Butchers’ Company.

I am married with two daughters.  My wife is a solicitor and equity partner in a City law firm specialising in financial regulation.

My expertise includes town & country planning, environmental, EU law and local government law. I am a Fellow at the Centre for European Law, King’s College, London,  part of which sits within the ward; Deputy Chancellor of the Dioceses of both Exeter and Truro, member of the House Council of St. Stephen’s House, Oxford University.

I am also called to the bars of both the Northern Ireland and King’s Inns, Ireland.   I have also sought to reinforce the historic links between the City and London Irish Rugby Football Club.
