First practising KC to become Advocate launches law firm

Wednesday 07 June 2023

The first practising King’s Counsel to become a Jersey Advocate has launched his own law firm.

Advocate James Corbett has founded JCKC Law, providing legal services to professional intermediaries, high-net-worth individuals and institutional clients.

He was sworn in as an Advocate of the Royal Court in January, becoming the first ever practising English King’s Counsel to be called to the Jersey Bar. 

Advocate Corbett said: “I am delighted to establish JCKC Law in Jersey to meet the professional advisory needs of international clients. 

“I will provide a range of services, from conventional dispute resolution and litigation to mediation and arbitration in civil law disputes, where the parties wish to settle complex commercial matters without the cost and publicity that legal proceedings can bring.”

He will practice as Advocate James Corbett in Jersey and as James Corbett KC in England and Wales and globally.

As English counsel who has been called in numerous other jurisdictions such as Hong Kong, Singapore and the Cayman Islands, the dispute resolution lawyer is able to appear before a range of international courts and tribunals.

JCKC Law will further provide dispute resolution expertise, especially for parties engaged in trust or commercial litigation.
