Raulin Amy - Ogier

Within: Corporate and commercial

The corporate and commercial team at Ogier ‘not only has the strongest set of partners, it also has real strength in depth’, according to one client, and ‘has the approach of a Magic Circle firm in London in terms of capability, delivery and client service’. Simon Dinning, who is the global head of the firm’s corporate and commercial offering, ‘is an outstanding source of sound, well-reasoned guidance whether in the midst of a transaction or with ad hoc queries’. EN+ appointed a team comprised of Dinning and managing associate Alexander Curry to oversee its IPO of global depositary receipts listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). Also notable was the group’s work for Kennedy-Wilson Holdings with regard to its all-share merger with Kennedy-Wilson Europe Real Estate by way of a Jersey scheme of arrangement. Its enviable client base, including Anglo American, Cinven and Waitrose, also engages the team to handle corporate restructurings, real estate transactions and the establishment of holding structures. The ‘pragmatic, knowledgeable and responsiveRaulin Amy is also a key contact, alongside Richard Daggett and Matthew Shaxson.

  • The New Charities Law - a bright new dawn

    As of Friday 21 November 2014, the new Charities (Jersey) Law 2014 (the " Law ") (or at least certain parts of it) came into effect.  This represents a quantum leap forward for Jersey in the charity field.  The Law has introduced a new test for what is charitable (the " Charity Test "), has introduced the post of a Charity Commissioner and a Charity Tribunal, and in time will introduce standards that those who run charities in the Island will have to abide by.  It is hoped that the Law will enable the Island to flourish as a centre for the administration of charitable and philanthropic structures.
  • New Managed Account Regime for Jersey Hedge Fund Managers

    An exemption which will enable Jersey-regulated fund managers to be appointed in relation to managed accounts has now been introduced.  This will enable hedge fund managers that are already regulated under the Financial Services (Jersey) Law (FS Law) in Jersey to carry out fund services business (FSB) to also service qualifying segregated managed accounts (QSMAs) without the need to seek additional regulation for the conduct of investment business under the FS Law.
  • The Security Interests (Jersey) Law 2012: Changes to Jersey's security regime

    On 2 January 2014, the Security Interests (Jersey) Law 2012 came into force in respect of Jersey law security over intangible movable property (e.g. shares/securities, bank accounts and custody assets).  The new law replaces the Security Interests (Jersey) Law 1983 (which was in force for the last three decades) and introduces a number of important changes which modernise Jersey's security regime.
  • Exclusive and Inherent Jurisdictions: to boldly go where no Court has gone before?

    On 26 November 2014, the Privy Council delivered judgment in the long-running case of Crociani & Others v. Crociani & Others [2014] UKPC 40 .  The case is of interest to trustees because it provides conclusive and binding guidance on the treatment of exclusive jurisdiction clauses in trust deeds.  However, it also raises questions as to the fundamental nature of the inherent supervisory jurisdiction of the Royal Court in connection with trust matters, and whether it is in fact broader than previously thought.
