I’m a Partner of Mourant Ozannes (Jersey) LLP in our Jersey Finance and Corporate practice and part of our specialist financial services and regulatory team. I work with my colleagues in other practice areas and jurisdictions to advise financial institutions on legal and regulatory issues affecting their structure, operations, products and services.
I regularly advise on the scope and application of Jersey's financial services and anti-money laundering regimes, including those applicable to banking, investment business, money service business, trust company business and insurance business.
I've assisted financial institutions to establish their business in Jersey (including obtaining requisite licences) and advised others on how to operate on a cross-border basis to sell their products and services into Jersey. I've worked alongside UK counsel and my colleagues in Guernsey to deliver restructuring projects for financial institutions operating in Jersey, including by continuance (or redomiciliation), merger, cross-border merger, court approved transfer scheme, outsourcing arrangements and customer novation. The successful completion of these projects and my ability to advise financial institutions about responding to regulator enquiries, all rely on my having spent over a decade to build a strong professional relationship with the Jersey Financial Services Commission. My expertise also extends to advising financial institutions in relation to conduct of business requirements affecting their policies and procedures, terms of business, client take-on documentation and their use of new technology.
I stay connected with relevant authorities including the Government of Jersey and the Jersey Financial Services Commission. This is vital for keeping up to date on changes to financial services regulation and sharing my point of view on how some changes might impact financial institutions.
I joined Mourant Ozannes in 2005.
