Carey Olsen has appointed Julie Currie as a senior associate within its trusts and private wealth practice across Guernsey and Jersey.
This is the first time the firm has appointed a pan-island lawyer in the Channel Islands.
As a pensions specialist, Ms Currie will divide her time between Carey Olsen's Guernsey and Jersey offices each week, working alongside other pensions specialists within the trusts teams, including Guernsey partner Konrad Friedlaender and Jersey partner Siobhan Riley.
Ms Currie joins the firm after over ten years at Pinsent Masons, where most recently she was an associate. She has extensive experience in defined benefit, defined contribution and master trust schemes. In her work she advises local and international trustee clients on scheme governance, administration and regulatory issues, in addition to project work including transfers, scheme restructures, risk transfers (buy-ins and buy-outs) and benefit change exercises.
Mr Friedlaender said: "Julie's arrival as a pan-island lawyer is a really exciting development for the firm and our pensions practice. It makes sense on a number of levels because not only are we seeing an increasing volume of instructions in the pensions space but a growing number of our clients have a presence in both Guernsey and Jersey. The fact that Julie will be active in both jurisdictions puts her and the firm in an advantageous position."
