Bedell Cristin's David Cadin is new Jersey Bâtonnier

19 Jul 2013

It has been announced that Bedell Cristin’s Litigation Partner, David Cadin, has been appointed to the post of Bâtonnier.

The Bâtonnier is the leader of the Bar, elected by fellow advocates, for a period of three years, to serve their interests and indeed, those of the wider community through the provision of legal aid (administration of which is delegated to the office of the Acting Bâtonnier). In addition, the Bâtonnier represents the Bar on ceremonial occasions and is an ex-officio member of the Committee of the Law Society of Jersey.

Managing Partner of Bedell Cristin, Richard Gerwat, said that "David's recent appointment highlights the respect which Bedell Cristin partners command from their peers, and serves to illustrate our significant and ongoing contribution to the professions and to the island. I wish him well in his term of office."

David’s appointment in Jersey follows a similar announcement in Guernsey in May this year when Bedell Cristin Guernsey Partner, Advocate Mark Helyar, was appointed Bâtonnier of the Guernsey Bar.
