Jersey's first boutique law firm specialising in corporate, finance and trust law.

About Us
Meet The Team
I’ve been working with Elena on a three-month trust dispute trial in Jersey involving a claim for over $200m and have worked with her previously. She is extremely clever with an astounding grasp of detail. She is a very talented lawyer more than capable of dealing with high profile and high net worth cases. She is also extremely good with clients.
