Prior to his call to the Bar, Joshua spent a year as a paralegal in the Private Client department of Charles Russell. He later undertook a three-month secondment in the Private Client and Trusts department of Bailhache Labesse (now part of Appleby Global) on Jersey and recently assisted Hanson Renouf in a discovery exercise in a complex and high-value tracing claim by a divorcing wife against a Jersey trust . This has given him a special insight into the particular needs and expectations of his professional clients as well as significant experience of offshore trust work, which he has been able to build on subsequently.
