Law firm Ferbrache & Farrell LLP is celebrating its five-year anniversary.

Opening in November 2016 with just nine people, the team now numbers more than 30, with an increasing local and international client base.

With core offerings in corporate law, dispute resolution and private client (including both Guernsey and English residential and commercial real estate and property), its client base ranges from local individuals through to well-known international institutions, for all their Guernsey legal requirements.

Managing Partner, Alastair Hargreaves, said of the anniversary: ‘It has been a privilege to work alongside such talented people in Ferbrache & Farrell and to see our business develop in the way it has. We are committed to providing a first class legal service and to helping our clients with innovative, timely and cost effective solutions. We thank all of our clients and intermediaries for the invaluable support, trust and confidence they place in us and we look forward to the next five years.’

In its relatively short growth phase, the firm and its lawyers have been recognised on several occasions in professional rankings and directories, and have been shortlisted on multiple occasions for industry awards on both team levels and for the firm overall.

Speaking of the firm’s dispute resolution successes, Partner Martin Jones said: ‘The department has always aimed to offer a credible and cost effective alternative to our larger competitors. The continued growth and increase in instructions, from both local and international clients, is testament to how far we have come since November 2016 and the exciting future that lies ahead.’ 

Although based in Guernsey, the firm works closely alongside a number of well-known law firms, financial and other institutions in other jurisdictions on cross border matters, and particularly so in the corporate team.

Corporate Partner, Gavin Farrell, an industry leader, added: ‘It has been a privilege to be a part of what has now become the only Guernsey-based full service commercial law firm instructed by both local and international client bases and competing with the Guernsey offices of the major global international offshore law firms.’

With all of the challenges facing business and individuals at the present time, the firm is keen to recognise the importance of collaboration and flexibility and to structuring its offerings in a helpful way. With energy and enthusiasm the Ferbrache & Farrell team is actively exploring new opportunities and are looking forward to the coming years ahead.
