Lawyer qualifies as a Guernsey Advocate


Henry Simpson from Ogier's Guernsey Business and Trust Law Group has qualified and been admitted as an Advocate of the Royal Court of Guernsey.

Having worked previously as a bursary student, he recently re-joined Ogier from another offshore firm and advises on a broad range of banking, finance, regulatory, corporate and commercial matters.

In addition, Mr Simpson also advises on legal and regulatory aspects relating to private wealth structures, including Guernsey trusts and partnerships.  All are disciplines central to Ogier's Guernsey practice.  

Mr Simpson, who is also qualified as an English Barrister, works in Managing Partner Marcus Leese's team.

Mr Leese said: "We're delighted to welcome Henry back to the firm.  On behalf of all of the partners, I'm very pleased to congratulate him on the significant achievement of qualifying and admission as a Guernsey Advocate.

"The qualification process for a Guernsey Advocate is extensive, onerous and genuinely testing and requires real diligence and commitment.  Henry has already demonstrated those qualities in his work for clients.

"Henry is a great addition to our firm.  Our team here in Guernsey continues to grow and we will be making more announcements about recruitment during the course of the summer."
