Hatstone strengthens its dispute resolution team with new senior appointment

Hatstone has strengthened its dispute resolution team in Jersey with the appointment of Advocate Alexander English to Group Partner.

Alexander’s addition brings the litigation department in Jersey up to two Group Partners and is a reflection of a particularly strong period of growth across its global dispute resolution practice.

Alexander is experienced in all areas of Jersey litigation but his principal areas of expertise are in family and civil court work.  He appears mainly in the higher courts of Jersey.

He is one of only a small number of Advocates to have experience of winning an appeal in the Court of Appeal against a judgment of the Royal Court.

His wide-ranging civil practice includes, but is not limited to, trust disputes, breach of contract, negligence, employment law, personal injury, defamation, debt recovery, construction disputes, property disputes, and wills disputes.

His family practice includes but is not limited to divorce, maintenance and child contact proceedings.

Speaking of Alexander’s appointment Group Partner Advocate Stephen Wauchope said:

“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Alexander to the Hatstone group partnership. Alexander has established an enviable track record of success for his clients and is widely regarded as a bright, charismatic, tough and a highly-effective advocate. I very much look forward to working with him and developing further the litigation and dispute resolution practice in Jersey”
