  • Background & experience

    Tim began his career with Le Masurier, Giffard and Poch (which merged to become Ogier in 1995).

    In 1991, Tim moved to the Conveyancing Department of the States (then known as the "Autorisé de la Partie Publique" and which was subsequently merged in to the Law Officers’ Department ) as Head of Conveyancing. At the time of Tim's appointment, Sir Godfray Le Quesne's formal legal review of the "Autorise's Department" had recently been published and which listed serious concerns as to the governance and management of that Department. Notwithstanding these issues, and over a number of years, Tim was able to not only successfully transform the working practices of the Department but also to regain the trust and respect of the private law firms.

    Of all the various transactions that Tim dealt with whilst at the Law Officers' Department, for him the most memorable was the transfer of the ownership of Gorey and Elizabeth Castles by the Crown to the Public of the Island.

    In 2006, Tim re-joined Ogier as a Senior Conveyancer.
