Hassans Treble Called to the Gibraltar Bar

February 2010

Hassans is delighted to announce that three associates, Lizanne Noguera, Grahame Jackson and Joelle Hernandez were called to the Gibraltar Bar/ Admitted to the Role of Solicitors last week

Joelle and Lizanne were called as barristers whilst Grahame was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of Gibraltar on the 26th January 2010. The petitions were presented by senior partner, James Levy QC.

Lizanne specialises in corporate and commercial law and will work under James Levy, Joelle in Funds under James Lasry, partner and Head of Funds and Grahame under Chris White, partner and Head of Tax. These three associates "show great potential and I am delighted that they will remain with their respective teams to complement the range of services and experience we can offer our clients", says Javier Chincotta, Managing Partner.

Grahame started on the ‘shop floor' at Line Management where his talent was recognised, this took him through to paralegal and subsequently, with the firms assistance he studied part time, qualifying as an English solicitor last year. This shows that Hassans recognises talent through more than one route and is willing to support staff members and see them flourish and grow. Grahame's previous experience in business (owning his own company) also means he brings a wider range of skills to the table and a deeper understanding of business matters, that can only enhance the service and knowledge we can give to our clients.

Joelle's first taste of law was during a 2 week school work experience project at the Supreme Court in Gibraltar. This gave Joelle her first insight into law and was what led her into pursuing law as a career. She then spent the next 5 years at Cardiff University where she studied for her law degree gaining a creditable First Class Honors Degree and where she was also awarded the "Cardiff Law School prize" for outstanding academic achievement. Five summers spent working at Hassans on the summer student work placement scheme gave her valuable experience and exposure to working at Hassans which made it the obvious choice for her application for employment.

The firm is proud to have Lizanne on board.  She is an Oxford University graduate, who read modern history prior to her studying for the Graduate Diploma in Law at Oxford Brookes University, and later embarking upon the Bar Vocational Course at City University, London. Lizanne also spent a summer on the student programme with Hassans.  Given the firm's prestige and its outstanding performance at an international level, she felt Hassans was the firm of choice in Gibraltar.

James Levy, QC, senior partner at Hassans, adds "our young lawyers rising through the ranks are a credit to the firm and I look forward to seeing them progress their careers with Hassans in order that we can continue to be ranked one of the leading law firms in Gibraltar".

  • International Tax Planning Association Journal – Madrid 19-20 March 2012 – Vol XII Number 3

    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.
