Practice Areas

Laurent is a Guernsey Advocate and Senior Counsel in Walker's Guernsey Insolvency & Dispute Resolution Group. He specialises in trust, finance and insolvency, and corporate disputes and advises leading global law firms, fiduciaries and high net-worth clients across these areas. Laurent has significant experience acting for trustees, beneficiaries and protectors in contentious matters as well as in respect of non-contentious court applications and wider negotiations.

Having worked in the London and Paris offices of a Magic Circle firm's structured finance team and, previously, in financial restructuring and distressed debt, Laurent has a wealth of transactional experience and is uniquely placed to act on complex, cross-border contentious matters.

Laurent is a fluent French speaker.

Laurent joined Walkers (Guernsey) LLP in 2017. He trained with the London office of Bingham McCutchen (now Akin Gump) qualifying as a solicitor of England and Wales, having been involved in the team advising on post-2008 financial crisis litigation.

He practised in Paris and London in the finance department of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, including a period on secondment with a major international banking group as an in-house adviser on their trading floor.

He worked in the corporate law team of another leading offshore law firm before joining Walkers.
