Edward Scott joined Dickinson Gleeson as a partner in July 2016. Edward advises on a wide range of corporate matters including establishing, buying and selling, redomiciling and winding up Jersey companies.

Edward has also advised a number of Jersey and international banks on finance and regulatory issues.
Recently the corporate and finance department has advised on significant transactions, including acting for Land Securities, on its purchase of shopping centres, held by Jersey Property Unit Trusts, for in excess of £330m, and advising on the subsequent reorganisation of the Jersey structures.
Originally from Jersey, Edward graduated with a First Class degree from Selwyn College, Cambridge University. Edward trained at Dentons in London and qualified as an English solicitor in 2005. He has worked at Linklaters before returning to Jersey, where he worked for Ogier for seven years, qualifying as a Jersey Advocate in 2013.
