Banking & Finance

Banks today face an ever increasing raft of challenges, both regulatory and commercial, as well as competition for deals from non-bank lenders and alternative funders. We provide our banking clients with a comprehensive service on- and off-transaction, including our plain English precedents for their business. We help our clients keep up with the changing landscape in order to remain competitive in the market place whilst delivering quality service to their own customers. Our clients focus on relationship banking and we work hard to support them in doing so. We also advise P2P lenders and invoice discounters on their lending and security arrangements, and their documentation.

Private Client

As global legislation, regulation and taxation constantly change and become more complex, it has never been more important to make long-term plans to secure your future, the future of your family or your business. We cut through the legal jargon to provide clear, practical advice when you most need it and anticipate the challenges you are likely to face so that you can rest assured you and your family are in safe hands at every step of the way.


At Collas Crill we take a hands-on approach, working in close collaboration with our clients, their advisers and other legal professionals to ensure every deal and transaction is managed to successful completion. Regardless of the prevailing economic and market conditions our goal is to minimise the risks and drive maximum value for our clients in every property transaction. Our property specialists have the local knowledge and expertise to not only offer top quality advice on all commercial and residential transactions, but to give meaningful opinions and anticipate challenges and opportunities at every stage of the process.

Relocate to the Channel Islands

Our team is ideally placed to advise on and project manage such a relocation, advising on everything from company migrations, housing licences and real estate matters through to introductions to other service providers and complementary local businesses. Some of our people have first-hand experience of moving to the island themselves, affording them a unique insight into the challenges and opportunities you are likely to face.

Residential Property

Property law can be a complex, daunting and emotional experience for many individual buyers and sellers. Feeling an emotional tie to your new or prospective property, your 'home', is inevitable. When buying or selling property you need a strong, dependable team that knows the market inside and out. We offer top quality advice and successfully anticipate the unique challenges and opportunities you are likely to face. We believe that communication and responsiveness is the key to a stress-free experience which is why we're always on hand to listen, offer assistance and pick up the phone to keep you informed at every stage of a transaction.
