Practice Areas

Ben is a Guernsey Advocate, and Partner of Collas Crill's Dispute Resolution team.

His practice is focussed on contentious and semi-contentious trust work, advising both trustees and beneficiaries and appearing in the Royal Court in Guernsey on those matters.

He has a particular interest in the issues around the succession to wealth by the next generation.

Career

Ben read Psychology at undergraduate level at the University of Sheffield, specialising in workplace psychology, and subsequently undertook an MSc in Human Resource Management.

As a first career, Ben worked at a large public sector organisation in the UK, planning and managing significant projects of change and restructuring. This drew on both his academic studies, but also required coordinating legal input, and engaging in negotiation with trade union representatives.

In 2007 Ben made the change to law, studying in Manchester, and receiving the Law Society Bursary for his LPC studies.

Ben joined Collas Crill in 2009, qualifying as an English solicitor in 2011 after a secondment to Olswang LLP, and as a Guernsey Advocate in 2015. He was made a partner of the firm on 1 January 2019.
