Alison Antill has been admitted as an advocate of the Royal Court of Guernsey after completing her training while working at Ferbrache and Farrell. She is the first trainee lawyer at the firm to be admitted.
Ms Antill has been working as an associate in the firm's dispute resolution team after previously qualifying as a solicitor in England.
She returned to Guernsey in 2018, joined Ferbrache and Farrell, completed the Guernsey Bar exams in May this year and the Certificat d’Etudes Juridiques Francaises et Normandes in October.
Ms Antill said: "I am delighted to be admitted as a Guernsey advocate, as it is something I have aspired to for many years, since my early work experience with local firms.
"The fused role of an advocate in Guernsey means we can offer an excellent service to clients engaged in litigation, both in dealing with the matter day to day and presenting their cases in court.
"Guernsey is a unique jurisdiction and I am honoured to be joining this highly-regarded group of lawyers. I am very grateful for the support of my family and colleagues in helping me to fulfil this ambition."
Martin Jones, Head of the firm’s dispute resolution team and Advocate Antill’s Pupil Master, said: "It is a proud day for both Alison and the firm. She is our first ‘home-grown’ advocate, which is a significant milestone since we opened our doors five years ago."
