Mourant appoints two new Channel Islands Partners for 2023

Thursday 02 March 2023

Mourant has announced the appointment of two new Partners to its Guernsey and Jersey teams, both internally.

Sandra Duerden, a member of the Guernsey Litigation practice and James Daniel, from the firm's Jersey Finance and Corporate practice, have been promoted to Partner.

Ms Duerden joined Mourant in 2006 as a Paralegal and since qualifying in 2010 has specialised in commercial litigation and contentious trusts disputes. She has a particular interest in cross-border disputes or those having international law aspects, as well as insolvency and regulatory matters.

Mr Daniel started at Mourant in 2008 as a Legal Assistant and his practice today focuses on banking and finance law. He has extensive experience advising both borrowers and lenders on a diverse range of cross border banking and finance transactions.  

He has a particular focus on acquisition and leveraged financing, fund financing, real estate financing and Islamic financing. Mr Daniel has also been named as a Rising Star by Legal 500 UK since 2019.  

Mourant Global Managing Partner, Jonathan Rigby, said: "It’s fantastic to be able to announce the promotion of these two long-standing and highly respected lawyers to Partnership from within the firm.

"I have worked with James and Sandra for a number of years, and they possess both the experience and technical excellence to ensure we continue to provide the best possible service to our clients as they navigate the increasingly complex legal and regulatory landscape.

"We have invested heavily in our internal resources and training programs in recent years, and I’m sure that our staff development strategies will see more internal promotions like this in the future."
