Jeremy, said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed leading the Guernsey office for the last three years. However, the time is right to hand over the reins so I can fully focus on further developing my core practice. I know Richard will do a fantastic job and wish him all the success for his tenure.”

Richard said: “I am honoured to be asked to become the new Office Managing Group Partner. The firm’s reputation is first-class and I’m looking forward to working with such a dynamic and energetic team.
