Nuno Santos-Costa

Managing Partner, Jersey Jersey

Managing partner of Collas Crill in Jersey, Nuno is one the most highly regarded Jersey advocates. He has over 30 years experience and his profile has resulted in Collas Crill attracting some of the island's best known and most complex, top-flight litigation work.

Nuno is named in Legal 500's Hall of Fame UK lawyers list which identifies exceptional legal talent at the pinnacle of their profession.

Ranked 'Band One' in Chambers & Partners, Nuno specialises in commercial litigation and regularly represents clients in highly complex and important trust, contract and fraud cases many of which are now leading cases in their areas of law. The favoured advisor for many of Jersey's wealthiest families on their private, property and trust disputes, he has appeared in many substantial Jersey cases including acting for the first defendant in the Alhamrani trusts litigation, Jersey's biggest ever litigation dispute.

He is a Crown Advocate and prosecutes particularly high profile criminal cases; regularly advises various departments of the Island's government (the States); and undertakes investigations arising out of complaints of discipline or misconduct against members of the Jersey Law Society. Few Advocates, whether in Jersey or in England, are able to work at the highest level of their profession in such a wide variety of areas.

Nuno was appointed Relief Magistrate in 2009 and continues to undertake that role and is one of the founding members of the International Fraud Group (IFG), a co-ordinated team of expert fraud lawyers (including Mishcon de Reya). The IFG enables multi-jurisdictional matters to be managed centrally, and his membership has led to his being instructed on several substantial matters over the years. He also undertakes investigations arising out of complaints of discipline or misconduct against members of the Jersey & Guernsey Law Societies.
