Newly qualified solicitors join Collas Crill's Channel Islands team

Alex Wileman-Smith and Harry Round have recently qualified as English Solicitors on completion of their two-year training contracts within Collas Crill's Jersey and Guernsey offices.

Alex, joining as Associate in the Corporate, Finance and Funds team in Jersey, spent his summer breaks from university with the firm as a bursary student before commencing his training in 2018. During his training , he was seconded to the banking team of City firm Osborne Clarke for a brief period.

Harry joins the firm's Guernsey Property team as an Associate. He began his career with the firm as a paralegal in the property team in 2015 and has maintained a keen interest in commercial property practice throughout his time here.

Sean Cheong, Partner and Collas Crill's Training Principal said: 'Congratulations to Alex and Harry on their training success, particularly in challenging times – training during lockdown was not easy or straightforward and it's incredibly rewarding to see that our young lawyers have managed to develop not only legal skills but a degree of adaptability and agility in the way they work with clients and colleagues.'

Jason Romer, Group Managing Partner, said: 'Collas Crill has a strong track record in trainee development, which has, over many years, been inspired, led and developed by Sean. Our structured programme offers a fantastic grounding in the ever-changing world of legal practice and has been supporting aspiring lawyers through the various stages of their training for more than 12 years.

'I'm delighted to see Alex and Harry qualify, and wish them many more successful years at the firm.'
