Paul Wilson - Collas Crill
Within: Corporate and commercial
Collas Crill’s lawyers are ‘thorough and attentive to detail’. The practice was active advising high-profile local and international clients in M&A transactions and restructurings. Alongside colleagues in Guernsey, the team advised Ravenscroft on the £41m acquisition of the Jacksons CI group, and acted for Condor on the £115m acquisition of a new ferry. The practice also advised Andium Homes on its establishment as an independent entity, separate from the States of Jersey. Paul Wilson leads the team, and Mark Rawlins is highly recommended. Rosie Stott left the firm in February 2015 for an in-house position at Waypoint Capital.
Elena Moran joined Collas Crill in May 2014 from Ogier, and has since acted for Nautech Services in a claim against former employees regarding the misuse of confidential information. The ‘straightforward’ Paul Wilson leads the ‘excellent’ team, which increasingly acts for employers as well as employees; it handled the employment aspects of Ravenscroft’s acquisition of the Jackson’s car-dealership franchise.
