Jersey: Carey Olsen Litigation Practice Expands In Jersey
Last Updated: 16 January 2015

Experienced trust lawyer Michael Goulborn has joined our litigation team as of counsel in the Jersey office.

Mr Goulborn has particular expertise in contentious and non-contentious trust matters both in Jersey and internationally. He recently acted for two of the plaintiffs in the complex Alhamrani proceedings in Jersey, which occupied the courts for more than six years.

Mr Goulborn also deals with commercial and financial services disputes including administrative applications involving trustees, beneficiaries and protectors as well as breach of trust actions and corporate insolvency. 

He is named as a prominent figure in the Citywealth Leaders List for contentious trust work and is a member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists.

After a successful career in the Royal Air Force Mr Goulborn read law at Cambridge University and qualified as a solicitor (England and Wales) in 1992. He was admitted as an advocate of the Royal Court of Jersey in 2004 and is also qualified as a Jersey notary public.

Head of litigation in Jersey, John Kelleher, said: "Michael adds an extra facet to our expertise in contentious and non-contentious trust litigation, which continues to be an active area of business for the firm.

"Our litigation practice is one of the largest offshore and, as we move into 2015, our growth is set to continue."

Carey Olsen was recently commended in the 2014 Financial Times Innovative Lawyers report for a ground-breaking Jersey case involving a request for information under a tax information exchange agreement (TIEA).
