Collas Crill celebrates 'award wins and international recognition'

Collas Crill has been celebrating awards success after several of the firm’s lawyers won honours, at both an international and local level, in addition to receiving recognition in the industry’s top two legal directories.

On a local level, senior partner Chris Bound received the Lifetime Achievement Award at last month's Guernsey Property and Construction Awards.

He was recognised for his significant contribution to the local property industry over the last 30 years. He is due to retire soon. 

Jason Green, head of the Guernsey property team, said: “Chris has played a significant part in building Collas Crill’s property team and his knowledge and outstanding commitment to the local industry is unparalleled. It’s a rightful tribute that he has been recognised in such a prestigious way.”

Mr Bound said: "It was a fantastic opportunity to be part of an event that features locally-based innovative businesses that are adding real value to our economy and creating great job opportunities. It has been a privilege to work with several of these enterprises. I am very grateful to clients and colleagues for their support over the years. It's been a lot of fun."

Internationally, Guernsey Partner Christian Hay was awarded a Worldwide Excellence Award by STEP Worldwide. The Worldwide Excellence Awards celebrate the top scorers across all STEP exams globally. Christian was commended for being this year’s top scoring candidate at Distinction level for the STEP Diploma in International Trust Management.

Three of the firm’s lawyers were also recognised at the Citywealth Future Leaders Awards in London, which champions young professionals in the wealth sector. Angela Calnan and Ben Havard won Gold in the Partner and Senior Associate categories respectively and Silver in the Associate category was awarded to Greg Haddow.

Collas Crill’s Guernsey property team continued to maintain their year-on-year Band 1 position in the industry’s two leading global directories, Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

A number of the firm’s lawyers, in both Jersey and Guernsey, were recognised as Legal 500 leading individuals and Legal 500 Next Generation Lawyers as well as Chambers & Partners’ Up-and-coming Lawyers.
