Hanson Renouf has recruited a Queen’s Counsel to its ranks, and is understood to be the first Jersey law firm ever to do so.
The Dispute Litigation team at Hanson Renouf has been bolstered by the arrival of leading commercial silk Richard Jones QC. Richard joins Hanson Renouf in order to build upon the firm’s existing litigation expertise and proceeds of crime work; he brings with him a level of experience and expertise that will be difficult to find elsewhere in the Island.
Richard shares Barristers’ Chambers in the UK with Advocates Timothy Hanson and Mark Renouf, known as No5 Chambers, and currently heads up the following teams there: Banking, Finance & Finance Regulation; Commercial Litigation; International Arbitration & Trade; as well as Technology and Construction. All three lawyers will retain rights of audience to practise in England and Wales.
Advocate Timothy Hanson greeted the arrival of Richard Jones QC as “a coup not only for Hanson Renouf but also for Jersey. Our firm has come a long way since it opened in 2005 and demonstrates the opportunities that are available in the Island if you are prepared to put the work and effort in. The arrival of Richard Jones QC bolsters our ability to handle the more complex commercial cases but also means that we have a top silk locally to provide face to face legal advice so as to limit disputes occurring in the first place.”
To this end, Hanson Renouf is organising a seminar for 13th March (by invitation only), for Directors and employees of trust companies and banks. Richard will be addressing aspects of risk (both at a corporate and a personal level), including risks for executive and non-executive directors. Timothy will be speaking on recent legal development in respect of proceeds of crime and Jersey Trusts. For more information, or to request the addition of your name to the guest list please email Lucy Fosse or telephone 767764.
