Lynne GregoryBaker & Partners

Baker & Partners is a Jersey litigation boutique, commended for being ‘very coordinated, knowing the local courts well and therefore setting itself the right targets for winning locally‘. Lawyers focus on asset recovery, commercial and trust litigation, as well as contentious insolvencies, with an impressive client list comprising corporates, trustees, beneficiaries, high-net-worth individuals and governments. Founding partner Stephen Baker  has developed a niche in the interaction between civil and criminal law in fraud cases, as well as his main practice, which involves trust and commercial litigation. Simon Thomas  is an external crown advocate, and is frequently instructed by the Jersey attorney general in criminal cases; while William Redgrave  is a veteran of commercial disputes, specialising in obtaining freezing and disclosure orders to assist in asset tracing and the preservation of assets. Lynne Gregory  is the name to note for contentious insolvencies and trust. James Sheedy  and Charlie Sorensen  are also recommended.
