Walkers has promoted three lawyers to the partnership of its Jersey office as part of its annual promotions round which saw a record 26 new Partners internationally.
Sevyn Kalsi (Private Capital & Trusts), Julia Keppe (Banking & Finance) and Daniel Read (Employment) have all joined the local Walkers partnership, which now stands at 15-strong.
In addition, Tom Fothergill (Investment Funds & Corporate) and Advocate James Turnbull (Insolvency & Dispute Resolution) have been promoted to Senior Counsel, whilst Ellen Jarvis and Luke Steele (Investment Funds & Corporate), Alice Wight (Banking & Finance) and Alex Schluep and Charlotte Yates (Insolvency & Dispute Resolution) have been promoted to Senior Associate.
Jonathan Heaney, the Managing Partner of Walkers' Jersey office, said: "On behalf of everyone in the Walkers partnership in Jersey and the entire office, I am delighted to congratulate Sev, Julia, Dan, Tom, James, Ellen, Luke, Alice, Charlotte and Alex on their promotions.
"Each of them has made a significant impact on their practice areas since joining us, and their dedication and hard work has further strengthened our teams as we continue to grow and win market share."
His comments were echoed by Fraser Hern, the Head of Walkers' Channel Islands business. "I am delighted to see Sev, Julia and Dan rewarded for their hard work and to see them step up into leadership roles within the group," he said.
"Their onshore experience in London and further afield coupled with their offshore experience here in Jersey makes them a real asset to clients, and the feedback that we get on their work demonstrates the value that they are adding.
"Congratulations also to our new Senior Counsel and Senior Associates – it is particularly pleasing to see promotions across each of our practice groups, and to see a round of promotions recognising an equal number of men and women."
