New lead family law specialist for Carey Olsen's Jersey office
Carey Olsen has confirmed senior associate Lauren Glynn as its lead family law specialist in Jersey.
Lauren takes over from Samantha McFadzean who recently became the Family Division Registrar of the Royal Court in Jersey. Lauren joined Carey Olsen in 2013 before departing in 2017 to practise at a small specialist litigation firm. She returned in September in preparation to take over as the firm's family law specialist.
Lauren has significant experience advising on a range of relationship generated issues, including pre and post nuptial agreements; divorce and civil partnership dissolution and cohabitees' disputes; complex contested financial disputes arising out of relationship breakdowns; and contested proceedings relating to children, including applications for contact, residence, leave to remove, prohibited steps orders and abduction.
Carey Olsen partner Marcus Pallot said: "Lauren is a very accomplished and experienced family law specialist and has forged an excellent reputation for herself locally. She is adept at promoting alternative dispute resolution solutions wherever possible, but when litigation cannot be avoided she is able to call upon her considerable experience of appearing before the Royal Court of Jersey."
Lauren has recently been appointed to sit as treasurer and committee member of the Jersey Family Law Association.
