Daniel Walker, Senior Associate in the Commercial Department at Voisin Law, has been awarded the Law Society of Jersey prize for obtaining top marks in the Civil & Criminal Procedure paper in the 2016 Jersey Law examinations. This follows on from his success in 2015 when he was awarded the Law Society prize for obtaining joint top marks in the Company Law paper.
At Voisin, Mr Walker advises on all aspects of Jersey corporate, security and banking law and has particular expertise in acting for real estate developers in relation to real estate finance, restructurings and property acquisition. He has worked on a number of significant projects recently including advising on a multi-million pound refinancing of a leading local care home provider.
The Law Society held their awards dinner in February when Daniel received his award. The prizes were presented by the Deputy Bailiff, Timothy Le Cocq, in his capacity as President of the Board of Examiners.
President of The Law Society of Jersey, Advocate Jonathan Speck said:
“The route to qualifying as a Jersey Advocate or Solicitor requires a considerable level of study and
dedication and to achieve success is a great achievement. Today we celebrate excellence on the part of individuals who have achieved the highest marks in very testing examinations. We congratulate them all and wish them well in their future careers in the legal profession.”
Ian Strang, Managing Partner of Voisin law, commented: "We at Voisin law are all very proud of Daniel’s achievement in his exams. The examinations in themselves are no easy feat and to be leading his peers with such excellent marks is a great credit to him. He is a high-flying member of our Commercial team.”
