What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

Our team at Carey Olsen has been fortunate to have been involved in a range of challenging trust matters from the non-contentious to the overtly hostile, some involving modest values and others measured in the billions. Several are now making their way through the Court process and will develop the law in Jersey and may be influential beyond. The quality of the financial services business conducted in Jersey allows us as lawyers to enjoy stimulating work and valued relationships with our trustee, protector, settlor and beneficiary clients.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

The advice I would give to rising stars, new lawyers and indeed anyone involved in the financial services industry is to be ready to adapt to change and to continue their learning at all stages throughout their career. Political and financial uncertainty as well as legal and regulatory change will remain a reality for the foreseeable future if not the rest of our working lives.
