In addition to the appointment of a new group partner to Appleby’s Jersey business, Paul Worsnop, Senior Associate from Appleby’s Corporate Team in Jersey, has today been sworn in as a Jersey Advocate in the Royal Court.

Senior Associate, Paul Worsnop commented after his swearing-in ceremony:

“The current restrictions meant today’s ceremony wasn’t quite what it otherwise might have been but it was still an excellent way to mark all the hard work my classmates and I have put in over the last two years.  I am very grateful to the Royal Court for doing everything they could in difficult circumstances and making today such a success.  I am sure we will all be celebrating tonight in whatever way we can!”

Corporate Practice Group Head Andrew Weaver commented:

“We are pleased to have Christophe Kalinauckas join our thriving and growing team. Congratulations also to Paul Worsnop for being sworn-in as a Jersey Advocate. Both announcements underline our strategic objective to reinforce our position as one of the leading offshore firms both globally and in Jersey.”
