Carey Olsen adds new senior associate to property team

Carey Olsen has appointed Sarah Wallis as a senior associate to the firm’s 14-strong property team in Guernsey to further strengthen the firm’s residential conveyancing and private client services.

Advocate Wallis qualified as a barrister and advocate of the Royal Court of Guernsey in 1997 and as a notary public earlier this year. She is also a trained family mediator specialising in divorce, inheritance and child related issues.

Property partner Davey Le Marquand said: “Sarah is well known in the Guernsey market and has an established private client practice. She is a valuable asset to our property department and we are delighted that she has chosen to join Carey Olsen”

Advocate Wallis said: “Carey Olsen’s excellent reputation and strong collegiate ethos were important factors in my choice of law firms when I decided to move. I have been impressed since joining not only by them both but also the friendly and supportive working environment.”

Carey Olsen’s property team is ranked in tier one by Chambers Europe and Legal 500 where the team’s industry knowledge is cited as being “second to none” (Legal 500 UK).
