Jersey: Ogier Property Law Charitable Work – Lease To Barnardo’s
Last Updated: 17 July 2015

Ogier's Property team have acted in relation to a lease of premises in St Helier to the charity Barnardo's.

The building will be used to provide supported lodgings and life skills education to young people leaving the care system.

Ogier worked with local businessman and philanthropist Philip Gower in his purchase, through the Philip Gower Charitable Trust, of the premises and concluded, on a free of charge basis, a lease of the premises to Barnardo's.

Mr Gower, a Jersey resident, has a history of generous acts of charitable donation in the Island including the donation to NSPCC of Town premises (formerly the Elim Church) in 2013.

Head of Property at Ogier, Advocate Jonathan Hughes, said: "Ogier prides itself on corporate responsibility and is pleased to assist, on a pro bono basis, in many transactions involving charities and other organisations where the focus is on the Jersey community and improving our Island life for all residents especially its most vulnerable members."

Ogier's Jersey Property Law team acts for buyers, sellers, developers, financiers and investors providing advice on purchases, sales and leases of commercial and residential properties in Jersey.

It has worked on some of the largest and most complex commercial property transactions in the Island.
