Bedell Cristin bolsters property team through series of appointments and promotions

21 Nov 2017

Bedell Cristin has bolstered its property team in Jersey through the appointment of Jeff O’Boyle as a Senior Associate and Priya Jobanputra as an Associate.

Jeff, who joined the firm from a Guernsey practice, has been advising clients in the Channel Islands on local and UK commercial property transactions since 2013. Previously, Jeff spent 12 years working for Pinsent Masons in the UK and brings experience of representing a number of multinational clients including investors, developers, lenders and private clients on a wide range of complex and high-value instructions.

A qualified solicitor in England and Wales, Jeff has a particular expertise in acquisitions and disposals, landlord and tenant matters, property finance and energy.

Priya, who is also an English qualified solicitor, joins Bedell Cristin as a Property Associate. She has more than seven years’ experience working in residential property and conveyancing.  In her most recent role, she assisted in developing standard practices and growing the department.

These appointments follow the promotions of Natalie Harris to Senior Associate and Jane Needham to Associate, who was sworn in as a Jersey solicitor last week.

David Cadin, Managing Partner, Bedell Cristin, commented:

“I’m delighted to welcome our new colleagues to the property team here in Jersey.  Jeff and Priya bring substantial experience that enhances our firm's capabilities.  We’ve seen a significant uplift in both residential and commercial property work compared to last year, which reflects a thriving real estate market and underpins our own team growth.”
