Baker & Partners Welcomes the Newest Addition to its Growing Team of Legal Experts

May 2017

Baker & Partners welcomes the newest addition to its growing team of law experts, Senior Associate, Lynne Gregory.

A qualified English Solicitor, Lynne brings over 25 years of practical law expertise covering a wide range of disciplines including litigation and regulatory compliance, areas in which Baker & Partners specialises. She studied at University College London, graduating with first-class honours, before beginning her law career in London, working for several of the City’s most high-profile firms. These included Baker McKenzie, where she worked in the Dispute Resolution Department, and Charles Russell Speechlys, where she became the Legal Director in its Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department. These roles allowed Lynne to gain valuable practical experience across the full spectrum of commercial and civil dispute resolution. Between 2013 and 2017, Lynne dealt with complex litigation spanning multiple jurisdictions including the UK, Africa, Australia and Canada, as well as compliance matters, as the in-house lawyer at Centamin PLC, a FTSE 250 mining company based in Jersey.

In her new role at Baker & Partners, Lynne will draw upon her experience, taking on a broad range of civil and commercial litigation with focus on international fraud and asset tracing.

Stephen Baker, Senior Partner at Baker & Partners, commented:

“I’m pleased to welcome yet another talented law professional to our team of experts in 2017. With her background in >multijurisdictional litigation and compliance, Lynne brings valuable experience in several business areas that we are looking to expand on this year. I’m proud to be able to offer Lynne’s expertise to our clients, while providing her with the opportunity to develop her knowledge of our offshore jurisdiction”.

  • 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.
