Award wins for trust team "Future Leaders"

Sevyn Kalsi and Josephine Howe from Ogier's Jersey Private Client and Trusts team won Future Leaders awards in Citywealth's awards last night.

Sevyn won the gold award in the "CSR Initiative of the Year" category at the awards, and Josephine was the bronze award winner in the "Lawyer of the Year IFC – Associate" category.

The awards were decided by a team of judges and an online vote.

Sally Edwards, Ogier's Global Head of Private Client and Trusts, said: "We are all pleased to see the hard work and deserved success of both Sevyn and Josephine recognised in this way - both are building thoroughly-deserved reputations as rising stars in the private client and trusts world, and both fully merit the description of 'Future Leaders'.

"Having embarked on a new CSR strategy across all of our jurisdictions in the last 18 months it has become an important part of life at Ogier, and it is good to see these things recognised by the industry at a wider level.

"Josephine continues to build a reputation for outstanding client service, with the most recent client feedback noting her technical skills, diligence and 'excellent turnaround times'."

"We remain committed to developing talent within our teams in addition to the strategic recruitment that has seen partner hires in our private client teams in Cayman, Guernsey and Jersey over the last 12 months, and Sevyn and Josephine are fine examples of future leaders in the profession."

Sevyn, a senior associate, advises corporate trustees, settlors and beneficiaries on matters relevant to Jersey trusts and foundations and also acts for ultra-high net worth individuals based both in Jersey and in other jurisdictions.

Josephine, a managing associate, acts for a wide range of professional trustees, settlors and beneficiaries, including leading trust companies, private banks and family offices on all issues concerning trusts and foundations as well as private wealth and regulatory matters.
