21st Mar 2024
Leanne Wallser has joined JTC Law as Head of Investment Funds and Corporate, as the firm looks to embark on a period of growth and expansion.

In her new position, Leanne will play a critical role in accelerating the evolution of JTC Law, which was originally founded in 2020 and, whilst enjoying a strategic alliance with FTSE 250 listed global service provider JTC, acts as an independent law firm.

In implementing JTC Law’s growth strategy, Leanne will work closely with Jeremy Garrood (Head of Insolvency and Dispute Resolution) and David Dorgan (Head of Private Client and International Trusts) who are all based in Jersey, as well as Mark Groben who sits in the London office.

JTC Law provides a comprehensive range of legal services spanning investment funds, corporate and commercial, dispute resolution and litigation, private client and international trusts as well as notarial services. The firm prides itself on the provision of the highest level of legal expertise through pragmatic and straightforward legal advice, combined with cost-efficient service packages to support clients through the various stages of their journey.

With more than 20 years of experience in Jersey law, working with some of the world’s leading investment fund managers, financial institutions, and sponsors, Leanne joins JTC Law having previously been a global partner at a large international law firm. She has particular expertise in the areas of private equity, real estate, venture capital, infrastructure, digital assets, technology and debt funds and advises on all aspects of Jersey corporate and commercial law.

Highly regarded in the industry, Leanne is recognised in Chambers and a Recommended Lawyer for both Investment Funds and Corporate work by Legal500. She is also an IFLR Leading Lawyer Highly Regarded in the Channel Islands, a recognised IFLR Women Leader and an active member of the Jersey Funds Association Legal and Technical Committee.

Commenting on the strategic importance of JTC Law, Nigel Le Quesne, CEO, JTC, said:

“JTC prides itself on being able to provide solutions to meet the bespoke needs of clients and often this is achieved by ensuring we can source external legal advice when required. With that in mind and against the backdrop of our Group-wide growth ambitions, I look forward to seeing the ongoing value JTC Law can add as it embarks on another period of evolution and growth.

“Sitting alongside JTC’s wider professional services offering, JTC Law significantly enhances our reach and client service offering, aiming to fulfil the Group’s goal of providing a one-stop shop for clients.”

Leanne Wallser commented:

“This year marks an exciting new chapter in the evolution of JTC Law, and I have huge belief in our potential. The firm occupies a unique position, being independent whilst also benefitting from an association with the JTC Group. This gives us the ability to provide a highly flexible service offering for clients tailored to their needs, whether they are looking for integrated legal and professional services in partnership with JTC, additional legal services to complement existing arrangements, or the services of a trusted advisor for those seeking a legal-only relationship with an independent law firm.

“Our core values are deep-rooted in a culture of collaboration and inclusivity, mirroring the ethos of the JTC Group. By blending a high-quality professional proposition with a genuine focus on our people, our aim is to differentiate ourselves from the more traditional law firm model, something that is reflected in our reward packages, consultancy opportunities and flexible working arrangements. We are now fully focused on continuing to grow our team, expanding our reach and enhancing our proposition in the international legal services market.”
