Q&A

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

Being involved in some of the most important and high-profile trust litigation in Jersey, including Re Z Trusts (in which the Jersey court is developing an insolvency regime for trusts and as most recently been in the Court of Appeal), B and C –v- Virtue Trustees (Switzerland) AG (in which the Court of Appeal clarified the law of rectification) and M –v- W (which concerns an ongoing application by a beneficiary to remove the protector of a very valuable trust).

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

"Three things:
1. Be ready to learn something new every day.
2. Never assume anything. Assumption is the mother of all mistakes.
3. Think independently and trust your instincts."
