Carey Olsen strengthens Guernsey litigation and trusts teams with associate appointments

Carey Olsen has strengthened its dispute resolution and litigation, and trusts and private wealth teams in Guernsey with the appointments of associates Sarah Kett, Acsah Nel and Shumona Neswar.

Sarah and Acsah have recently joined the dispute resolution and litigation team, which is already the largest in Guernsey.

Sarah, who trained at the Manchester office of Clarke Willmott LLP before joining Carey Olsen, advises local and international clients on a range of matters including corporate and company law disputes, trust disputes, employment law, intellectual property and commercial litigation.

Acsah specialises in a wide range of contentious and non-contentious aspects of corporate and company law, including contractual disputes. Prior to joining Carey Olsen, she practised with Norton Rose Fulbright in South Africa, and acted for the National Department of Health in South Africa in defending medical malpractice claims and advising on various aspect of healthcare regulation.

Shumona, who previously worked in the private client team at Knights in the UK, joined the Guernsey trusts and private wealth team earlier this year. She advises trustees and high net-worth individuals on a wide range of trust and private wealth matters, with a particular focus on wills, trusts and estate planning.

Commenting on the new arrivals, Russell Clark, Guernsey managing partner and head of Carey Olsen's trusts and private wealth team in the island, said: "Sarah, Acsah and Shumona are three very strong additions to our Guernsey office. Their appointments reflect the continued growth of both our dispute resolution and litigation, and trusts and private wealth teams, and are likely to be followed by further new arrivals in the coming months in response to increasing client demand."
