Dionne Gilbert


Dionne is a highly skilled litigator with 20 years' experience offering an impressive range of private client expertise to the firm's UHNW client base.

With a particular focus on complex and cross border family matters, Dionne has extensive experience in advising and representing clients in high value divorce and financial remedy proceedings involving on and offshore assets; and sensitive child law matters including complex relocation cases and residency matters. Dionne regularly negotiates pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements on behalf of clients wishing to protect pre-marital assets, and provides insightful advice on the protection of family wealth.

Dionne has considerable experience in dealing with cases involving capacity issues and holds the court appointment of Case Delegate (acting to manage the financial affairs of an individual lacking capacity - broadly speaking the Jersey equivalent to Guardianships) in two particularly complex cases. Dionne regularly deals with contentious probate matters, including cases involving the appointment of Tuteurs to deal with a minor's property.

Dionne also has significant experience in criminal litigation and has appeared in a large number of high profile cases, including the first ever prosecution for money laundering in Jersey which went to the Privy Council for determination. 

Dionne also advises on civil disputes, including contractual disputes and personal injury as well as Landlord and Tenant issues. Dionne was involved in the leading case in Jersey on establishing the prescription period for Voisinage, a customary law doctrine.

She is, and will remain until the beginning of 2019, the Acting Batonnier, who is responsible for running Jersey's legal aid scheme. Dionne has been a member of the Working Party tasked with progressing law reform initiatives in this area during her appointment.
