Our people

Andrea Steel

Counsel

Andrea is a Jersey advocate and English solicitor with over 15 years’ post qualification financial services experience.

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. She has held a number of regulated board positions, both in Jersey and the UK and has acted as compliance officer and money laundering reporting officer for a number of Jersey and UK financial services businesses, including several high profile regulated funds.

During her time in-house, Andrea developed 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.

Career

Andrea returned to Carey Olsen in 2019, having spent her early career with the firm. She qualified as a Jersey advocate in 2000 and, prior to moving in-house in 2005, advised a range of institutional and private clients on a broad spectrum of commercial legal matters, specialising in corporate, funds and fiduciary work.
