Jersey Litigation Partner, David Cadin, has been appointed as Master of the Royal Court of Jersey.
David joined Bedell Cristin in 2003 after having practised as an English barrister for nearly 10 years. He became a Partner in 2005 and held the role of Global Managing Partner from 2016 to 2019, during which time he steered the firm to becoming an independent standalone practice and oversaw our significant merger in the Cayman Islands. He has continued his role as Jersey Managing Partner since 2019.
David will be sworn into his new position in February 2023. He succeeds Advocate Matthew Thompson, who will become a Commissioner of the Royal Court.
Tim Pearce, Global Managing Partner, commented:
"I'd like to congratulate David on his appointment to this esteemed role. Being appointed as Master of the Royal Court showcases not only his legal expertise, but also his passion for the island, and it is a testament to the calibre of our firm and our litigators that one of our own is being appointed to judicial office.
“There is no doubting David’s significant contribution to Bedell Cristin over the last twenty years, and we thank him for his dedication to the firm. We know that David will continue to make a difference to Jersey’s legal community in his new role.”
