Of Counsel | Jersey

Private Client and Trusts


Bonnie is Of Counsel in the Private Client and Trusts team, specialising in non-contentious trust law.

"I pride myself on being personable and paying attention to the detail, such that I hope it makes me easy to do business with."


Bonnie joined Collas Crill in 2016 and has since gained a breadth of experience in both non-contentious and contentious trust matters.  She enjoys good relationships with local trustees and onshore intermediaries alike, and advises on the establishment and lifecycle administration of Jersey trusts. In particular, Bonnie was a pivotal member of the team that worked on a high-value contentious trust matter, which involved multi-jurisdictional complex tax and fiduciary related issues.

More recently, Bonnie has acted as the firm's Relationship Manager in Jersey, working with clients to identify their needs and acting as their first point of contact and conduit, to ensure that we meet our clients' expectations and deliver our values and continued excellence.  

During her career at Collas Crill she was also seconded to a private bank, giving her first-hand experience and awareness of commercial considerations.  As such, Bonnie has a great insight into the workings of a business beyond pure law, such that she offers pragmatic advice and encapsulates our value of being 'easy to do business with' in her approach.


Bonnie was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 2011 and was awarded a Certificate of Honours in recognition of achieving the highest grade. She is a member of The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple.  

Bonnie subsequently retrained as a solicitor and was admitted to the roll of England and Wales in 2018. Prior to joining Collas Crill, Bonnie worked at another leading offshore law firm in their Guernsey and London offices.
