"A client once told a researcher from a legal directory that I was fun to work with. Fun isn't an essential ingredient within a client/lawyer relationship, but I certainly enjoy building strong relationships with clients – it normally leads to a better team dynamic and a good result for the client."

Christian heads up the Guernsey dispute resolution practice, leading a team of talented commercial litigators with strong expertise in financial services related disputes.

If there is a high value dispute between trustees and beneficiaries; between bank and customer/investor; between commercial entities; between majority/minority shareholders; against directors; or within a contentious liquidation Christian and his team are likely to be acting for one of the parties.

He is among the leading commercial litigation practitioners at the Guernsey Bar with a particular expertise in contentious trust related matters, and corporate disputes.

On any given matter Christian advises on matters of strategy, settles Court papers and takes the lead in any Court appearances.
