Exam Success for Walkers’ Jersey and Guernsey Lawyers

Walkers' lawyers Sevyn Kalsi and Antonia Hull have been recognised by the Jersey Law Society for their excellence in the Jersey Law exams.

Sevyn, a Senior Counsel in Walkers' Jersey Private Capital & Trusts team, was awarded The Richard Pirie Prize for the highest mark in the trust law paper, while Antonia, a Senior Associate in the Investment Funds & Corporate team, was awarded the prize for the top mark in the Jersey Legal Systems and Constitutional Law paper.

Sevyn is due to be admitted as a Jersey Advocate on 7 December having successfully completed his Jersey law exams, while Antonia is midway through her studies.

Senior Counsel Louise Hamilton and Legal Assistant Rebecca Lever from Walkers' Jersey Banking & Finance team are also due to be admitted as Jersey Advocates on the 15 November, having successfully completed their studies.

In the firm's Guernsey office, Senior Associate Helena Lavin from the Insolvency & Dispute Resolution team has successfully completed the Guernsey Bar Exams and the Certificat d’Etudes Juridiques Françaises et Normandes from Caen University.

Jonathan Heaney, the Managing Partner of Walkers' Jersey office, congratulated the lawyers on their success.

He said: "To secure the top results in the Jersey law exams is an impressive achievement, and I congratulate Sevyn and Antonia – this recognition by the Jersey Law Society underlines their technical knowledge and ability.

"Admission to the Jersey Bar is a major accomplishment that demands commitment, dedication, a lot of hard work and skill, and we are all delighted by Sevyn, Louise and Rebecca's achievement, and by Antonia's success in her ongoing studies.

"Likewise I am delighted at Helena's achievements, which mark the next step in her development as part of our market-leading Guernsey Insolvency & Dispute Resolution practice."
