Jared is an experienced courtroom advocate, having appeared very regularly first in the English courts as a barrister, and subsequently in the Jersey courts at all levels.  He frequently works closely with colleagues in other Appleby offices, and with law firms in the UK and internationally, having developed a practice which often involves international and multi-jurisdictional issues.
