A new, independent law firm has launched in Guernsey.

Ferbrache & Farrell LLP, which will focus on corporate, property and dispute resolution, has been founded by partners Gavin Farrell, Alastair Hargreaves and Martin Jones. Experienced lawyer and Guernsey's Economic Development President Peter Ferbrache has been appointed as a consultant and Stuart Platt-Ransom as Chief Executive.

"Ferbrache & Farrell brings together highly respected lawyers and advocates with decades of experience and who are all recognised locally and internationally for their levels of expertise," said Advocate Ferbrache.

"That experience and independent recognition together with a people-focused culture and commitment to delivering a premier, partner-led, personal and cost-effective service is what differentiates us."

All of the firm's partners and staff previously worked at other large offshore law firms and have worked together on a cross-disciplinary basis.

"Every member of Ferbrache & Farrell LLP's team has invaluable experience in matters of Guernsey law, both for Guernsey clients and as part of transactions with an international exposure," said Advocate Hargreaves, who will act as Managing Partner.

"We are proud to be a solely Guernsey-owned firm but with a team which has a global reputation for excellence and a commitment to delivering exceptional service."
