Andrea has considerable expertise in a wide range of fund structuring, formation, administration and regulatory matters, with particular knowledge of private equity and real estate funds. She has a track record of building strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders and demonstrating commitment to organisational aims, values and strategies.


Andrea returned to Carey Olsen in 2019, having spent her early career with the firm. She qualified as a Jersey advocate in 2000. Prior to joining Carey Olsen, she spent 13 years working in-house at two of the leading European fund administration firms, heading up their in-house legal teams. During this time, she guided her internal clients through a raft of local and international legal and regulatory change. This has provided her with a unique commercial insight into all aspects of running a regulated financial services business, including managing relationships with external counsel.
