Welcome to the first edition of WALKERS' Jersey "COURTERLY" Review. With the new legal year having started on 12 September 2016 (on which date the Court was convened for the annual Assise d'Héritage, at which all practising Advocates and Ecrivains renewed their oaths), we can look forward to a number of further, interesting judgments from the Jersey Courts. However, although the legal year has only just started, over the summer months, a number of important judgments were handed down, brief summaries of which appear below, and it is particularly pleasing that Walkers were instructed in all three cases. Should you wish to discuss any of the cases outlined below, or if you would simply like to know more about any litigation issues, please do not hesitate to contact the Litigation team.
