Baker & Partners will hold their next breakfast briefing for Jersey’s financial services industry on the topic of dishonest assistance on Thursday 26th March, 8.30-09.30am, at the Royal Yacht.
The briefing will be led by Advocate William Redgrave and Associate James Sheedy, who will explore the legal position of those who have carried out client instructions without first considering or investigating the legitimacy of their client’s activities. They will use practical examples to illustrate what can go wrong, and will suggest how businesses should act to avoid the risk of exposure.
William Redgrave CTAPS is a Jersey Advocate and English Barrister with extensive experience in litigation and a focus on advocacy. William worked on many recent notable civil decisions in Jersey. He also has substantial experience in criminal fraud cases and in regulatory matters involving financial services.
James Sheedy is an English barrister who joined Baker & Partners as an Associate in January 2014. He specialises in traditional Chancery work and contentious trusts. James has experience in breach of trust claims, issues about trust administration and trustee powers, enforcement of judgments against trustees and issues concerning trustees’ costs.
William Redgrave commented:
“I am looking forward to the next breakfast briefing. This is an important and relevant topic for those working in Jersey’s financial sector as I find that not everyone appreciates the sort of conduct the courts will describe as dishonest assistance. Being on the wrong end of a dishonest assistance claim can be very damaging, both financially and in terms of reputation.”
