Two Associates Join Walkers' Growing Jersey Team

Insolvency & Dispute Resolution lawyer Alex Schluep and Private Capital & Trusts lawyer Devan Gounden have joined Walkers' Jersey team, as the firm continues to grow its Channel Islands business.

Alex has been in private practice since 2013, initially as an Advocate in South Africa focused on shareholder and directors disputes and insolvency matters, before moving offshore in 2021.

After being admitted as an Advocate in South Africa, Devan spent over ten years with major South African financial institutions, where he gained substantial financial, legal, fiduciary and compliance experience before moving offshore and joining Walkers in 2022.

Their arrivals mean that headcount in Walkers' Jersey office has grown by a third in the last 12 months, despite the constraints imposed by the global pandemic.

Partner and Head of Walkers' Jersey Insolvency & Dispute Resolution Group Nigel Sanders said: "We are very pleased to welcome Alex to our busy Insolvency & Dispute Resolution team – her experience in insolvency matters will strengthen the skills of our existing full-service litigation team."

Partner and Head of Walkers' Jersey Private Capital & Trusts Group Robert Dobbyn said: "We are delighted to see Devan joining the team in Jersey. He is a pleasure to work with, and his expertise and experience will be invaluable in ensuring that our clients continue to receive a first class service from Walkers."

Walkers is the largest offshore law firm and also has offices in Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, Cayman, Dubai, Dublin, Guernsey, Hong Kong, London and Singapore.
