Channel Islands

Details

Our Channel Islands team helps co-ordinate legal services for clients who are pursuing business opportunities in the Channel Islands. We also work with Channel Islands clients who are looking to do business internationally.

For clients based outside the Channel Islands, we can recommend the most suitable legal advisers to act on Jersey or Guernsey matters. We have strong links with a range of firms that we know well.

For Channel Islands clients, we offer a multi-disciplinary team covering the full range of legal services, including litigation, real estate and investment funds. We have significant experience in the financial services sector and boast an award-winning trusts litigation team.

Experience

Our highlights include:

  • Acting for the Federal Republic of Brazil in relation to the successful recovery of assets stemming from alleged corruption of Paulo Maluf, the former mayor of Sao Paulo, including in respect of proceedings in the Royal Court of Jersey and the dismissal of the Defendants' appeal to the Privy Council.
  • Advising Mariana Resources (a Guernsey company) on its $175 million acquisition by Sandstorm Gold.
  • Acting for a consortium of high-net worth individuals to pursue claims to recover assets in connection with a £100 million property fraud scheme. We obtained freezing orders in Jersey and elsewhere and made substantial recoveries.
  • Acting for a Jersey-based professional services client defending multi-million pound proceedings in the English High Court.
  • Advising Guernsey-based CEIBA Investment on its listing on the specialist fund segment of the main market for listed securities of the London Stock Exchange.

Members of the team visit the firm's clients and contacts in Jersey and Guernsey several times a year.
