The new role, which will be in addition to Wendy’s existing roles as partner and local practice group head of the corporate team, will focus on the overall management of the Jersey office, including strengthening and growing the Jersey business. It was announced last year that Wendy would also take on management responsibility for Appleby’s Guernsey office.

Wendy Benjamin commented: “I am honoured to be leading the fantastic team in our Jersey office. I am looking forward to working with them to develop and grow our business, while ensuring that our clients continue to receive the high level of service they expect.”

Wendy first joined Appleby in 1999 and became partner in 2003. Prior to her move to the Channel Islands Wendy was the Legal Adviser to the Registrar of Companies for England and Wales between 1995 and 1999. Before this she was a partner with Eversheds where she trained and qualified.

Wendy is highly regarded among colleagues and clients, with respected industry publications Chambers UK and Legal 500 UK having both identified Wendy as a leader in her field. Legal 500 UK 2017 highlighted that “Wendy recognises opportunities to go above and beyond”.
