James Badcock joins Collas Crill's private client and trusts team

Collas Crill has appointed James Badcock as a Consultant in its International Private Client and Trusts (IPCT) team in the Channel Islands.

James has been brought in to support Channel Islands clients on Guernsey and Jersey law matters. He has significant experience of advising high net worth individuals on cross-border estate planning and advises trustees on trust law and the administration of trusts. He designs and implements wealth-holding structures for entrepreneurs and investors with interests and assets in several jurisdictions and has particular expertise in advising trustees on managing risk and supports dispute resolution lawyers on matters involving trusts.

After starting his career at Macfarlanes in London in 2003, James' extensive experience includes several years as partner and head of private client at Collyer Bristow, a leading London private client firm, where he also headed up the Geneva office for three years. Subsequently he was a director in the Private Client legal team at PwC before taking on consultancy roles.

James said: 'Collas Crill is a superb firm with a real focus on private wealth. I am looking forward to working with and learning from the firm's lawyers and their clients in the Channel Islands and internationally, many of whom I already know.'

Collas Crill's Group Managing Partner Jason Romer said: 'James is a seasoned lawyer within the private client space and very well placed to deliver the high-calibre work our growing client base has come to expect of us. He is a perfect fit for Collas Crill with a customer-centric approach, substantial experience in the services we offer and strong relationships with advisers and trustees alike.'
