Law firm Carey Olsen has promoted Advocates Claire Le Quesne and Will Whitehead to its Jersey partnership.

Advocate Le Quesne has been with Carey Olsen since 2006 and qualified as a Jersey Advocate in 2011. She advises clients in respect of corporate and funds matters, most notably corporate real estate and investment funds (both listed and non-listed).

She acts for fund clients on both their upstream fund launches, structurings, co-investments and re-structurings as well as the downstream portfolio acquisitions and financings.

Advocate Whitehead, who joined Carey Olsen in 2005, has over 15 years' experience advising clients on commercial and residential property matters. 

His practice centres on development and infrastructure projects, advising on planning and regulatory matters and across the full construction life cycle from site acquisition or disposal, development finance, procurement strategy and legal structuring.

He acts for local and international investors on commercial property acquisitions and disposals, advises on leasehold transactions, and has experience in banking and secured lending, advising lenders and borrowers on a variety of finance transactions. 

The firm has also promoted Simon Hall (Litigation, BVI) and Patricia Montgomery (Trusts and Private Wealth, Guernsey) to the partnership.

The four promotions bring the total number of partners across the Carey Olsen group to 74.

Carey Olsen group managing partner Alex Ohlsson said: “Congratulations to Claire, Will, Simon and Patricia on their well-deserved promotions. 

“Each has already made a significant contribution to Carey Olsen and earned excellent reputations for their commitment to our clients, and to the continued development of the business. The partnership is delighted to have them on board.”
