We at Dickinson Gleeson, alongside Spring IM and Axal Leine Recruitment, co-sponsored the 2022 Jersey France Challenge, raising funds for Dementia Jersey. We’re thrilled to have handed over the cheque in the sum of £15,000 and are proud to support such a worthy cause. Join us again on Sat 29 July 2023 for this epic swim challenge and help us exceed last year’s total.
Dickinson Gleeson is delighted it’s four partners have been recognised in the Private Client Global Elite directory. James Dickinson, James Gleeson and Craig Swart have been recognised as ‘Global Elite’ lawyers and Guillaume Staal as a ‘Rising leader’.
The Private Client Global Elite Directory was created with the awareness that referrals and recommendations are absolutely key to the private client sector. To know that someone is an excellent technical practitioner is not enough, it is integral for the maintenance of client relationships that the advisors you refer to your clients are good personality fits and masters of communication. As such, rather than a listing of private client advisors as chosen by a third party, these are the top selected individuals as chosen by their own peers within the private wealth industry.
Dickinson Gleeson have again been recognised as one of the 2022 eprivateclient Top Offshore law firms. Over 100 offshore law firms are surveyed, and the rankings are based on data received. All firms ranked operate across multiple and single jurisdictions.
Managing partner, James Dickinson said: “To be recognised for a second-year running is testament to our team’s diligence and quality of work.”
Dickinson Gleeson is delighted to again be ranked in The Legal 500 (Legalease) UK 2023. The Litigation team are praised in the rankings for being ‘very responsive and provides timely and detailed answers in judicial proceedings.’ Also, we are recognised for our ‘availability and adaptability to our clients’ needs.’ And for being ‘Clear, transparent and competitive on fees.’
James Dickinson and James Gleeson have maintained their Hall of Fame individual rankings. Guillaume Staal is again recognised as a Next Generation Partner and is described as ‘upfront, easy to deal with and describes situations in a clear and non-jargon basis.’ Whilst Pierre Ali-Noor also maintains his Rising Star ranking.
The Private Client Trusts and tax team are described as being ‘very experienced and knowledgeable team. They provide clear concise advice in a timely manner.’ A strong commercial practice that combines legal expertise with an ability to help clients get deals done.’ Practice head Craig Swart maintains his Leading individual status and is noted for being ‘very approachable, expresses himself clearly and is knowledgeable in all areas relating to trusts.’
Pierre Ali-Noor, Senior Associate, has been named as one of the 2022 ePrivateclient Channel Islands Top 35 Under 35. The Channel Islands Top 35 Under 35 initiative is designed to identify, recognise, promote and introduce the rising stars of the Private Client practitioner community in the Channel Islands.
Pierre’s practice covers a broad spectrum of private wealth work covering advisory, administrative and contentious trusts matters as well as commercial litigation. He has recently been sworn in as an Advocate of the Royal Court of Jersey, and is also an English barrister and solicitor (currently non-practising). In addition to this latest accolade, he is ranked in the Legal 500 UK directory as a “Rising Star” in Dispute Resolution in Jersey which says that he “works extremely hard and with technical precision. One to watch for the future” and has previously described him as being “hard working, charming and diligent. He really gets into the meat of a case”. Pierre has previously also been recognised by Legal Week’s Private Client Global Elite as a ‘Rising Star’ on three occasions.
