Bedell Cristin has appointed Sevyn Kalsi as a Partner in the firm’s International Private Client team in Jersey.
Sevyn (pictured), an experienced private client lawyer and Jersey Advocate, began his legal career in 2005 and worked at various London practices before moving to a large international Jersey law firm in 2014. He joins the firm from Walkers where he was most recently a Partner.
He advises corporate trustees, settlors, beneficiaries, high net worth individuals, family offices and intermediaries on matters relevant to Jersey trusts and foundations, and is often instructed by clients to coordinate their offshore interests.
Sevyn also advises on the establishment and ongoing administration of both family offices and private trust companies as well as on complex cross-jurisdictional trust and corporate re-structuring matters. He also regularly works alongside litigation colleagues on contentious trust matters.
Nancy Chien, Head of the International Private Client team at Bedell Cristin in Jersey, commented: “We are delighted to have Sevyn join our Tier 1 private client team. Sevyn’s experience and reputation will strengthen further our in-depth experience in Jersey and adds appreciably to our overall service capabilities at a time when our international private client work is flourishing.”
Tim Pearce, Global Managing Partner, Bedell Cristin, added: “As part of our growth strategy, we seek to recruit high calibre, senior lawyers with the experience to support our teams across all key locations and the recruitment of Sevyn, a highly skilled, leading private client lawyer in Jersey, fits that strategy perfectly and I am delighted to welcome him to the Partnership.”
