Two Bedell lawyers included on Citywealth’s Future Leaders List

23 Sep 2016

Nancy Chien, a Partner in the firm’s Private Wealth and Fiduciary group and Henry Wickham, a Senior Associate in the same group, have been named on a list of young professionals under the age of 40 identified as among the most talented working in the private client industry. Citywealth compiles its list each year from editorial research and recommendations.

Nancy specialises in advice on trust related structures including pensions and employee benefit trusts (EBTs). A fluent Mandarin and Taiwanese speaker, Nancy continues to build business in the Asian markets and, as chairman of the Jersey Pensions Association, is a driving force for the local pensions industry locally. She also worked with some of the key trust companies in Jersey to negotiate with the government in order to procure a specific exemption from FATCA/CRS reporting.

Henry advises on all aspects of Jersey trust law and has significant experience advising on the impact of international sanctions. He has been at the forefront of developments in private client services provided by the firm, has an impressive and respected role within the STEP organisation in Jersey where he is the youngest committee member and has a proven commitment to nurturing career development at the office.

Head of Private Wealth and Fiduciary, Edward Bennett, commented:

"The career development of our teams has always been a key priority of the firm and I‘m pleased that the calibre of two of our lawyers at both Partner and Senior Associate level has been recognised. As members of our top tier ranked group, Nancy and Henry have made significant contributions not only to the firm’s successful growth, but also to the wider industry."
