Ward Yates is a boutique Jersey law firm which specialises in providing corporate, finance and trust law advice.

The firm was established in 2014 by two former partners of one of the largest International law firms based in Jersey. Since its establishment Ward Yates has been praised by clients for the ability of its lawyers to “hold their own with Magic Circle firms”. Described in the latest rankings as “deal doers” and “problem solvers”, the firm is also recognised for always going the extra mile and delivering “unsurpassed advice and amazing response times” by combining a “high level of technical ability with a practical and commercial approach”.

Ward Yates regularly works with leading English counsel and international trust companies to provide expert legal advice with the personal service and responsiveness that drive a smaller firm. Unlike many firms, we usually work on a fixed fee basis, even on transactional matters, to ensure clients have certainty and transparency on fees. We pride ourselves not only on our technical expertise but on our client service and ability to work effectively as part of the wider team of advisors to exceed expectations.


We recognise that for new clients it is particularly important to know that they are in “safe hands” and that their offshore lawyers have the appropriate track record and expertise.

To assist in this process we are always happy to provide testimonials and references from existing clients and intermediaries with whom we have worked on similar matters. If you would like us to do this please let us know.
