Bedell Cristin promotes two lawyers to new Managing Associate role

15 Mar 2018

Bedell Cristin has enhanced its management structure and appointed two Senior Associates, Guy Westmacott in Jersey and Lee Osborne in Guernsey, to a newly created role of Managing Associate.

Guy Westmacott has been with the firm in its Jersey office since May 2016. He specialises in corporate and commercial matters with a focus on mergers and acquisitions and has advised on a wide range of domestic and international transactions since joining the firm. Prior to joining Bedell Cristin, Guy spent time working in roles in London and the Middle East.

Lee Osborne started with Bedell Cristin in Guernsey in July 2017 and is an experienced corporate, banking and investment funds lawyer, having spent almost a decade practising in the offshore market in both the BVI and Singapore. He advises on a broad range of corporate, banking and investment funds matters, including private equity, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, cross border transactions and complex corporate restructuring.

Commenting on the new appointments and the creation of the new roles, David Cadin, Managing Partner, commented:

‘Following a review, the firm agreed there should be a clearer career path for senior lawyers to reach the level of Partner; the new role of Managing Associate fulfils that requirement by acting as a transition from Senior Associate. Both Guy and Lee are highly experienced and have delivered a consistently strong performance. The leadership potential they have shown fully merits the promotions.’
