Private Capital & Trusts specialist Adam Fellows joins Walkers' Jersey office

Private wealth lawyer Adam Fellows has joined Walkers' growing Private Capital & Trusts team in Jersey.

Adam, who joins Walkers from a leading onshore firm in London as an associate, has both onshore and offshore experience as a private wealth lawyer, and in-house experience with an institutional trustee in Jersey.

He is partly STEP qualified and specialises in advice in relation to Jersey trust and foundation structures, and in advice relating to underlying assets.

The addition of Adam brings Walkers' Channel Islands Private Capital & Trusts team to 11 lawyers, led by partner Rupert Morris and group partners Rajah Abusrewil and David Cooney.

The Walkers Private Capital & Trusts team is unique in its jurisdictional offering – the teams in Jersey and Guernsey advise on the laws of Bermuda, BVI and Cayman as well as the laws of the Channel Islands, offering a jurisdictionally-agnostic service based on clients' unique requirements.

Immediately before joining Walkers, Adam was seconded to HSBC as legal counsel to its Trust & Fiduciary business in Jersey.

Group partner Rajah Abusrewil said: "Adam is a very welcome arrival to the team, and his experience in private practice onshore and in an in-house role offshore are directly relevant to our work.

"We continue to grow our team in the islands, and our unique positioning advising on five laws from two offices is resonating with our local and international client base who see the benefits of an authentically jurisdiction-neutral approach on offshore structuring options."

Jonathan Heaney, the managing partner of Walkers' Jersey office, added: "Our strategic growth in the Island continues, and I am very pleased to welcome Adam aboard – we look forward to following up with further announcements about our continuing recruitment activity in the coming weeks."
