Collas Crill strengthens trust and fiduciary department with senior hire

Collas Crill has expanded its international trusts and private client practice with the appointment of Cerisse Fisher as senior associate.

Cerisse specialises in all aspects of Guernsey trust law, advising trustees, family offices, high-net-worth individuals and intermediaries on the creation, restructuring and winding up of trusts. She also advises on a wide scope of cross-jurisdictional fiduciary transactions.

Cerisse brings invaluable experience to the firm from her previous position within a trust company, working on both legal and direct client matters. She has a broad knowledge of trustee challenges and pitfalls, plus the practical aspects of trusteeship and requirements of corporate service providers and their clients. She has also worked on an extensive range of trust transactions.

Cerisse qualified as a Solicitor of England and Wales in 2009 with experience in advising on private wealth structures and a wide variety of other fiduciary matters.

Angela Calnan, head of the department, said: “Cerisse’s combination of in-house and private practice experience is a great addition to our growing team. She has already established good relationships with our clients and is a very safe pair of hands indeed. We are absolutely thrilled with her decision to join us.”

Cerisse said: "It's a very exciting opportunity for me to return to private practice by joining such a dynamic and growing team. The skills and knowledge gleaned from my years in industry add another element to the team here at Collas Crill and should serve equally well for clients."
