Setting up during lockdown
How Edward Scott and Co became Jersey’s latest boutique
Having learnt his trade in London (training at Dentons), and in Jersey (Ogier and Dickinson Gleeson), Edward Scott is a busy lawyer. Together with his colleague, Kirsten Faichnie, he runs an eponymous offshore law firm, Edward Scott and Co – a boutique Jersey practice that advises on complex corporate and finance transactions, as well as regulatory and funds work.
Scott made the decision to set up shop in 2020 during the height of lockdown. ‘When transactions slowed down, I had the time to plan for a long-held ambition,’ he says. Faichnie, who joined at the outset, was a natural fit as a corporate and funds regulation specialist having spent 11 years at Mourant. ‘We were very lucky to be busy from the get-go with a very good- sized transaction to work on,’ says Scott. ‘Client attitudes to smaller outfits have changed.’
