Practice Overview

Ward Yates is a leading boutique Jersey law firm which specialises in providing Jersey and BVI corporate, finance and trust law advice.

The firm was established in 2014 by two former partners of one of the largest International law firms based in Jersey. Since its establishment Ward Yates has been shortlisted by Legal 500 each year as “Offshore Firm of the Year”, praised by clients for the ability of its lawyers to “hold their own with Magic Circle firms” and for always going the extra mile and delivering “unsurpassed advise and amazing response times”.

Ward Yates regularly works with leading English counsel and international trust companies to provide expert legal advice with the personal service and responsiveness that drive a smaller firm. Unlike many firms, we usually work on a fixed fee basis, even on transactional matters, to ensure clients have certainty and transparency on fees.  We pride ourselves not only on our technical expertise but on our client service and ability to work effectively as part of the wider team of advisors to exceed expectations.
