Experience and Expertise

Joshua undertook a three-month secondment in the Private Client and Trusts department of Bailhache Labesse (now part of Appleby Global) on Jersey, in which he acted in and advised on a wide range of private client and trust issues, such as a long-running dispute related to the administration of an estate with property in Jersey, France and England, and the replacement of trustees of a Jersey trust of breeder premiums for French racehorses.

More recently, he has advised and assisted other Jersey advocates on various contentious and non-contentious trust matters, including submissions to make on behalf of an Indian charity opposing the winding up of a Jersey discretionary trust, whether a Jersey trust company could set aside the registration in Jersey of a judgment against it in the English High Court, and the rights of beneficiaries of a Jersey trust in respect of the management of companies and other property owned by the trust.

In August 2012 he assisted Hanson Renouf in a discovery exercise in a complex and high-value tracing claim by a divorcing wife against a Jersey trust, holding shares of companies in several offshore jurisdictions, that was alleged to have been settled by the husband out of assets subject to community of property laws.
