Dickinson Gleeson are pleased to announce two senior appointments in its highly ranked dispute resolution team. Advocate Robert Christie has been promoted to Partner and Pierre Ali-Noor has joined the firm as a Senior Associate. These appointments, which build upon a hugely successful year for Dickinson Gleeson in 2018, mark the firm’s continued organic growth and expansion as it cements its place in Jersey as a leading disputes-focused law firm.
Robert, who joined the firm in 2015 having previously worked for Ogier in the BVI and practised at the English Bar in London, is continuing to build a practice focusing on trusts, company, commercial and insolvency litigation. Robert has been included in Legal Week’s Private Client Global Elite “Ones to Watch” list, a global list made up of 100 up and coming lawyers in the private client sector, for both 2017 and 2018. He qualified as a Jersey Advocate in 2017.
Pierre joins the firm from Mourant where he was a member of the Jersey dispute resolution team. Before moving to Jersey in 2016, Pierre previously worked for the London office of Herbert Smith Freehills for a number of years. Pierre has also been recognised in the 2018 Private Client Global Elite “Ones to Watch” list and been listed as one of eprivateclient’s “Top 35 Under 35” for 2017 and 2018. He has been described by the Legal 500 UK as being “as smart as they come” and a name to note.
Senior partner, James Dickinson, commented: “We are delighted to be able to share news of these two appointments. Bobby’s richly deserved promotion to the partnership demonstrates Dickinson Gleeson’s continued commitment to nurturing and developing its own staff”. Fellow founding partner, James Gleeson added: “Attracting and retaining the best legal talent has always been hugely important to us as a firm and so we are delighted to welcome Pierre to the firm. Both these appointments will allow Dickinson Gleeson to continue to provide the top-quality service to our clients to which we are committed.”
