Collas Crill continues to strengthen its Jersey office with three new appointments.
Lucy Diggle and Sam Williams have been appointed as senior associates and Lynne Calder has joined as an associate.
Based in the firm’s fiduciary department, Lucy qualified as a solicitor in 2005, spending more than five and a half years at leading London and regional firms specialising in international trusts and estate disputes.
In 2011 she moved to a top-tier offshore law firm in the Cayman Islands, expanding her practice to include all aspects of both contentious and non-contentious international trusts and private client work, regularly advising upon the settlement, restructuring, ongoing management and winding up of trusts.
Sam joins the firm’s dispute resolution practice area having previously worked for leading international law firm Simmons & Simmons where he trained and qualified as an English solicitor before relocating to Jersey in 2012, working for another offshore law firm.
A Jersey advocate, Sam’s litigation practice includes complex and cross-border commercial litigation and court applications, with particular emphasis on contentious trusts and corporate disputes.
Lynne also joins the firm’s dispute resolution department, having previously worked for DLA Piper, DWF and Dundas and Wilson, now CMS Cameron McKenna, in Scotland.
Having qualified as a solicitor in Scotland in 2002 specialising in commercial litigation, Lynne has represented a wide range of clients including banks, financial institutions, trusts, investment funds, companies, partnerships, insolvency practitioners and private individuals.
Senior partner and head of the dispute resolution team in the Channel Islands, Nuno Santos-Costa, said: ‘It’s great to have three well-versed lawyers join our team in Jersey.
‘Lucy, Sam and Lynne have excellent credentials in the offshore market with the right experience to continue to drive our expanding fiduciary and dispute resolution practice areas.’
