Collas Crill has strengthened its Jersey property team with the appointment of two associates.
Experienced associates Alison Le Breton and Alexandra Bassford have both joined Collas Crill, cementing the firm’s place as one of thelargest commercial and residential property offerings on the island.
Alison is a solicitor of England and Wales, experienced in Jersey property law and conveyancing, specialising in residential conveyancing, freehold/flying freehold purchases and sales, equity agreements, mortgages and re-financing.
Her role includes drafting contracts/agreements, title researches and boundary checks, site visits, advising on and witnessing loan security documents, meeting and advising clients and attending Court.
Recently, Alison worked as an assistant legal advisor in the Law Officers’ Department where her role included assisting with work related to the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry, with the prosecution and sentencing of Royal Court cases, and working as assistant legal advisor to the Attorney General.
Alexandra is also experienced in all areas of Jersey property law including commercial and residential purchases, sales and leases, share transfer purchases, equity agreements, mortgages and financing, among others.
Her client base ranges from high net worth clients to first time buyers. Most recently Alexandra was involved in the new Development in St Clement consisting of 45 units.
Alexandra is a Solicitor of the Royal Court of Jersey and is taking her Oath of Advocacy later this year. She is also a member of The Law Society of Jersey.
Partner Martin Le Boutillier, who heads up the property team, said: “The last year has been a significant period of growth for our property team. We were named a Tier 1 by Legal 500 and saw the appointment of partner Pamela Doherty.
“We are delighted to continue in this vein with the appointments of Alison and Alexandra. They both have afirst-rate reputation in our market and will assist the team as we continue to deliver an exceptional, bespoke service for our clients.”
