Jon Craddock


I set up Ares Legal in January 2024.  


I have worked within law firms and in-house legal roles in the Southampton area for the past 10 years, working with household names to start-up businesses as my clients. 


My experience of both the “traditional” law firm model and some “modern” models have helped me recognise the areas that each are lacking. 


Seeing all sides pushed me to create Ares Legal; something that combines my passion for providing the best legal advice, my commercial outlook and my desire to put my clients first.


I focus not only the law, but also the real commercial considerations that go into each contract and choice you make, because what is the point of knowing the legal position if you do not know how to apply it commercially? The advice I provide is tailored to your needs – I don’t sit on the fence!


Ares Legal has given me the flexibility to do what I love, and spend plenty of time with the people I care for most – my wonderful family.
