The Legal 500 UK 2022 directory was published last week and we are delighted to have maintained tier 1 ranking in the Private Client, Trusts and Tax category in Jersey.
Clients and intermediaries consistently praised our Jersey-based Private Client team with one describing them as “innovative, pragmatic, solution-oriented, reliable” and another reviewing them as the “go-to legal firm in Jersey”.
Having worked with many clients for decades, the team has an outstanding reputation of advising on the most complex private wealth structures and related corporate matters. Whilst they are based in Jersey, they have an international perspective and as one referrer noted, “they are also very good with international clients and solving multijurisdictional tax and legal issues.”
Another referrer commented on the breadth, depth and dynamism of the close-knit team: “The team is very strong from top to bottom. The partners and associates are hard working, responsive, and creative.”
This accolade is great news, not only for the Private Client team in Jersey but also for the global team that’s grown significantly over the last 18 months with several senior appointments.
In addition to the Legal 500 top tier ranking, two senior members of the Jersey team have been recognised individually – Nancy Chien (Partner and head of group) as a Leading Individual and Edward Bennett (Partner) in the Hall of Fame – and received some superb comments:
“The key partner I work with is the superlative Nancy Chien: a super-intelligent, talented lawyer qualified in Jersey, the UK and the BVI, so a fantastic local resource.”
“Nancy Chien is responsive and regularly available. She is commercial and proactive, and seeks to build long-term relationships with me and my clients.”
“Edward Bennett uses his vast array of experience and knowledge to provide pragmatic, first-rate advice. Always there when you need him. Edward Bennett is always my first port of call when I have a pressing or challenging situation which requires first-rate advice. Edward is also a true gentleman and an absolute pleasure to work with.”
We’d like to congratulate the entire Private Client team in Jersey for their well-deserved top tier accolade: Nancy Chien (head of group), Edward Bennett, Donna Withers, Elizabeth Shaw, Lydia Carter, Kirsten Brass, Briony Sun, Sacha Curr, Martine Heys, Lori Abraham and Michael Hill.
