Corbett Le Quesne has been shortlisted in the Citywealth IFC Awards in the prestigious category of Law Firm of the Year Jersey.
Corbett Le Quesne, who specialise in family law and who are known for campaigning for reform and equality, is the smallest law firm in the category and one of the only teams without other offices around the world.
Advocate Nick Le Quesne said: “When we established Corbett Le Quesne in 2017 we couldn’t have anticipated that five years later we would be up against huge offshore law firms in a category like Law Firm of the Year Jersey. We have been very fortunate and worked incredibly hard and won various top family law awards over the years but being included in this list shows we have moved into a different category with our private client work.”
Simon Lofthouse, Head of Private Client, commented: “It has been a really exciting and enjoyable place to work and it is brilliant to have the freedom to try new things and work with so many dynamic people.
“The Trusts and the Family Conference we are holding this month is a sign of how much we have grown in a short time and we have so many ideas for the future.”
Advocate Barbara Corbett stated: “We are hugely excited to be shortlisted in this category. We are known for our expertise in family law and this is the core of what we do. We are passionate about helping our clients resolve issues in a collaborative and pragmatic way where possible. The current divorce law in Jersey is outdated and almost forces people to start proceedings in a hostile way. I would like to take this opportunity to let people know that we are launching a campaign for no fault divorce to be introduced in Jersey. The UK implemented this last year and our international family conference in October will be focusing on this issue.”
