Bedell Cristin appoints managing partner in Guernsey

RELATED TOPICS​

Bedell Cristin has appointed Kate Ovenden as managing partner in the firm’s Guernsey office.

An experienced corporate, banking and financial services lawyer who spent 10 years working at City law firm Withers, Ovenden (pictured) became a partner of Bedell Cristin in 2010, having returned to Guernsey to join the firm in 2006.
 

 
Ovenden also has extensive experience in advising all types of clients on banking, funds, corporate and commercial matters. 
 

 
Advocate Mark Helyar, the former managing partner, will remain with the firm in an of counsel role.
 
Helyar, who has led the Guernsey office since it first opened, has been instrumental in its growth, driving the firm in attracting both major international clients and new business, including advising on increasing numbers of complex and often ground-breaking transactions in the insurance sector.
 
His expertise in cell structuring has also contributed to the Guernsey office’s rise to a top tier practice in the insurance and reinsurance market.
 

 
David Cadin, Bedell Cristin Jersey managing partner, says: "We thank Mark for his significant contribution since the Guernsey office first opened 10 years ago and in leading the business to the strong, competitive position it now enjoys. As we enter an exciting, new phase in the development of the law firm following the recent MBO announcement by Bedell Trust, Kate’s strong leadership skills, wide ranging commercial experience and acknowledged management capabilities, are the qualities needed to help drive our ongoing expansion and business growth strategy in Guernsey."
