Hudson, the alternative asset law firm, announced today that it
has opened an office in Guernsey.
The opening in Guernsey follows the firm's expansion into
Asia through the establishment of its Hong Kong office in August
2014. The new Guernsey office will work alongside MJ Hudson's
offices in London, Jersey and Hong Kong to provide a fully
integrated onshore and offshore specialist service for fund,
investment, corporate finance and M&A work.
MJ Hudson's Guernsey practice will be managed by Stefan
Gomoll. Mr Gomoll is an English solicitor and a Guernsey advocate,
working previously at Clifford Chance and Carey Olsen, with many
years of experience leading multi-jurisdictional teams closing
cross border investments. He is also a Guernsey Notary Public.
Mr Gomoll said: "I have been watching the growth of MJ
Hudson for some time and was delighted when I was approached to
launch and lead its new Guernsey office. The opening of an office
for a major international law firm like MJ Hudson is great news for
Guernsey, and will create opportunities for new funds and managers
to work on the Island."
He is joined by senior investment funds lawyer, Matt Wrigley,
who joins MJ Hudson from a leading global offshore law firm in
Guernsey. Matt has 15 years' global funds and alternative
assets experience, earned in a variety of roles, including General
Counsel of a fund manager listed in Australia, Chief Operating
Officer of an investment fund listed in Singapore and Fund Manager
for a top-10 global alternative asset manager.
Eamon Devlin, Managing Partner of MJ Hudson, said, "The
importance of Guernsey as a domicile for private equity and other
alternative assets funds and structures is well-established. After
12 months of planning and preparation, I am delighted to welcome
Stefan and Matt to our fast-growing firm and to be able to offer
our clients the flexibility afforded by our own Guernsey office.
This new office allows us to provide a seamless onshore and
offshore service to our clients, all under one roof."
The opening supports MJ Hudson's continuing advances to
become the leading global alternative assets law firm, reinforcing
its expansion into key asset manager and investment fund
jurisdictions. It also follows the firm's strategy of advising
clients on all aspects of the alternative asset management
industry, from fund formation through to investments and exits.
Observing a recent discussion between the children of a successful entrepreneur, I was reminded once again of the potential impact of family members being provided with differing information about the family enterprise.
