New private client partner for Bedell Cristin's Guernsey office

27 April 2020

Kerrie Le Tissier has re-joined Bedell Cristin as partner to develop and lead the firm’s international private client practice in Guernsey.

Kerrie has been a key member of the private client teams of leading offshore law firms for a number of years and brings her in-depth industry experience to Bedell Cristin’s multi-jurisdictional, dedicated private client practice. Kerrie also has international experience having worked in the private client department of a top Australian law firm and in-house at a family office in Geneva. Kerrie qualified as a Guernsey Advocate in 2009 and previously worked at Bedell Cristin between 2012 and 2016.

Kerrie's expertise lies in all aspects of private client structuring and succession planning often involving complex issues and bespoke document drafting. She also has significant experience in advising on corporate, commercial and funds matters, pensions, employee benefits and regulatory issues.

Global managing partner, Tim Pearce said: “Kerrie is a highly regarded lawyer and a welcome addition to the team. Her expertise will be a valuable addition to our market-leading, group-wide offering to the international private client market. Kerrie's appointment is part of our strategic programme to expand our global private client offering and follows the appointment of Andrew Miller as partner in our Cayman Islands office last year and the more recent appointment of Elizabeth Shaw as senior associate in Jersey last month.”

Kerrie has earned multiple industry accolades throughout her career and has been recognised by ePrivateClient, Citywealth, Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500.

Commenting on her appointment, Kerrie said: “I'm delighted to be re-joining Bedell Cristin, such a highly regarded offshore law firm with an enviable client base of trustees and high calibre private clients and family offices. I look forward to leading the Guernsey team and building on the quality proposition we already offer.”
