Carey Olsen senior associate Kirsty McGeough was admitted as an Advocate of the Royal Court of Guernsey on 7 November, following her successful completion of the Guernsey Bar exams and the Certificat d’Études Juridiques Françaises et Normandes at the University of Caen.
Kirsty is part of the firm’s trusts and private wealth practice and advises on a range of fiduciary and trusts law as well as private wealth matters. She is particularly experienced in the laws of trusts, inheritance and estate planning and regularly counsels professional and private trustees, high net worth individuals and families.
Managing partner Russell Clark said: “We are pleased to congratulate Kirsty as she becomes an Advocate of the Royal Court of Guernsey. We are committed to providing high levels of client service and supporting our staff through continued professional development helps us to achieve this aim.
“This significant achievement follows months of study, commitment and hard work and we are very proud to see another talented lawyer called to the Guernsey Bar. Having worked with Kirsty over the past two and a half years, I am confident that Kirsty will have a very successful career. She is a very welcome addition to the Bar.”
Kirsty was first admitted as a solicitor in Scotland in 2016 after achieving her degree at the University of Edinburgh and completing her two-year legal traineeship. She joined Carey Olsen in 2020 from a leading private client law firm based in Edinburgh where she trained and worked post-qualification in the trusts, tax and succession team.
