Visiting Professor appointment for partner of Hassans

March 2011

Nigel Feetham has been appointed a Visiting Professor at Nottingham Law School, Nottingham Trent University, with effect from 1 March 2011 for a period of three years

Visiting Professor is a title conferred upon persons of distinction who satisfy the criteria for appointment as a Professor. A professorship therefore recognises the merit of persons who are distinguished in their field, normally at national or international level, evidenced by sustained high professional standing in their discipline.

James Levy QC, Senior Partner at Hassans said “We believe this is the first such appointment of a Gibraltarian legal practitioner to the eminent position of Visiting Professor and underpins Hassans’ commitment to the pursuit of excellence. The appointment will also help to raise the profile of Gibraltar as a mainstream European financial centre.”

Javier Chincotta, Managing Partner of Hassans said “We are all delighted for Nigel. This distinguished appointment is further recognition of his expertise in his areas of practice and yet another step forward for Hassans which reflects the level of specialisation within the firm.”
Nigel is a partner at Hassans International Law Firm. His area of practice includes insurance, funds and structured finance. He has been a leading figure in the local financial community for a number of years and has played a major part in some of the most significant developments in the Gibraltar finance sector.

He graduated with a First Class Honours degree from Manchester Metropolitan University and was awarded a Masters degree in law with Distinction at Manchester Victoria University.

A barrister-at-law, he was admitted to the Supreme Court of Gibraltar on the 17th December 1993.

He is co-author of the book “Protected Cell Companies: a guide to their implementation and use” (now in its Second Edition). The book has received external praise and is the leading reference work on the subject. He is currently working on a new book to be published in April.
Nigel said "I am delighted with the appointment and look forward to my association with Nottingham Trent University. As the position is that of Visiting Professor, I will still continue to practice law in Gibraltar as I currently do. I am grateful to my colleagues at Hassans and clients for their overwhelming support. I owe my biggest debt of gratitude to my wife Yvonne, my children Shannon and Matthew and my late grandfather Walter Feetham."

    When we talk about Gibraltar and the EU perspective, we really are talking about a defining element of what has been driving Gibraltar over the last twenty-five or thirty years. Our membership of the European Union is not something that has been incidental and has not had a dramatic impact on Gibraltar; it has been very important in the direction that Gibraltar has taken over that period of time. Gibraltar - as you know - is attached to Southern Spain. Gibraltar and its position in the European Union is quite a fascinating study and a fascinating situation to explain.
