Jersey Finance has appointed Lisa Springate as head of technical with effect from 20 November, in succession to Tom Cowsill.

Ms Springate joins Jersey Finance from Bedell Cristin’s Jersey office, where she has been a part of the law firm's commercial litigation team for more than 17 years and a partner for nine years. She is a very experienced commercial litigator, having acted for high net worth individuals, leading banks and local trust companies. Her specialist areas have been contentious trust and probate, as well as regulatory work.

Prior to moving to Jersey in 1993, Ms Springate practised as a barrister in Chambers in London and with law firm Mayer Brown JSM in Hong Kong. She qualified as an advocate of the Royal Court of Jersey in 2000 and is also a board member of the Institute of Directors in Jersey and a non-executive director of Board Apprentice.

Geoff Cook, chief executive of Jersey Finance, commented: “Lisa brings with her a wealth of technical, legal, marketing and managerial experience and we are delighted to welcome her to the Jersey Finance team. Having worked for leading law firms both in Jersey and Hong Kong, she has a broad, rounded knowledge and appreciation of the regulatory environment within which Jersey’s Finance industry operates and I am sure members will benefit from Lisa’s skills and expertise.”
