‘In a short space of time Ferbrache & Farrell has built an excellent reputation, attracting high quality clients and instructions. I worked with Gavin as well as a number of the firm’s partners and staff at the then Ozannes and so I know I will enjoy re-joining them and working with the experienced team that continues to expand,’ said Mrs McGeoch.
‘I aim to provide advice to clients in clear, simple, practical terms. I am looking forward to working with Gavin again and the corporate and commercial team to further develop the offering and the firm. I am also looking forward to renewing my relationships with contacts in Guernsey and the UK.’

Helen’s broad experience over the last few years will be extremely valuable to the team.
