Voisin Law has announced the appointment of a new Partner. Chris Le Quesne has been promoted, bringing their total number of Partners at the island’s oldest law firm to nine.
Chris is part of Voisin’s Commercial Department and works on a range of company, trust and commercial matters, together with the establishment and ongoing advice to Jersey funds.
Chris joined Voisin in September 2010 as a trainee solicitor, having previously been a member of the firm’s bursary scheme. He was admitted as an English solicitor in October 2012 and the following year undertook the Jersey Law Course and was sworn in as an Advocate in February 2014.
Discussing the promotion, Voisin Law Partner Nigel Pearmain said: “We’re really delighted to see Chris promoted to Partner and look forward to him strengthening his engagement with new and existing clients and helping to lead our team of professionals to further success.”
“His promotion shows our commitment to nurturing in-house talent and we look forward to seeing his legal career continue with Voisin.”
Commenting on his progression with the company, Chris said, “Voisin have been very supportive of my career progression and my development as a lawyer, and I am hoping to be able to do the same for other members of the team moving forward. I have had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of practice areas, particularly relating to corporate structuring and finance. My practice also focuses on commercial matters and trust law, together with advising Jersey funds and fund service providers.”
“Voisin’s bursary scheme was an excellent way to gain some early experience of a career in law and It set me in good stead for the beginning of my training contract, which admittedly feels a long time ago now!. As a partner, I’m really looking forward to playing a part in the firm’s development over the coming years.”
