Bedell Cristin has promoted employment law specialist, Carly Parrott, to the role of Head of Employment in the Channel Islands.
Carly (pictured), who joined Bedell Cristin early last year as Counsel within the firm’s employment law practice, will lead the employment team across the Guernsey and Jersey offices.
Qualified in both New South Wales, Australia and in England and Wales, Carly is also a qualified workplace mediator, an accredited coach and has completed her IOD Diploma in Company Direction. She began her legal career in Australia in 2004 and moved to Guernsey in 2009 where she continues to be based. She has worked for several leading law firms both in Australia and Guernsey and has been recognised for many years for her expertise and insightful guidance in employment law matters.
Congratulating Carly on her promotion, Tim Pearce, Global Managing Partner, commented: “Having cemented her role within the firm since her appointment as Counsel in this specialist area early last year, I’m delighted that Carly has now been appointed to head the pan Channel Islands team and to drive forward our capabilities as a leading employment law practice.
“Carly was recruited because of her extensive experience advising local, international and multi-national clients on the full spectrum of both contentious and non-contentious employment law matters and I look forward to her leading our team as we continue to build our employment law practice to support our clients’ requirements both in the local market and globally.”
Carly said: “I’m delighted to have the responsibility to lead our experienced and highly capable team across the Channel Islands practice where our focus is not just on advising on the black letter of the law, but working as a trusted advisor strategizing with our clients and helping them resolve situations which enables them to get the best out of their most valuable asset – their employees.”
