Babbé has strengthened its expanding trusts and pensions practice in Guernsey with the appointment of Matthew Harrison as associate.
Harrison has over 12 years’ experience providing advisory services to trustees, tax advisers, law firms and their clients. He has developed particular expertise in the law relating to UK, offshore and international pension schemes as well as private and commercial trusts.
Prior to joining Babbé, Harrison qualified as an English solicitor in 2008 and initially concentrated exclusively on private client work. On moving to Guernsey he worked for a trust company which developed his expertise in international pensions and broadened his commercial experience.
Harrison is a member of the Association of Pension Lawyers and the author of ‘The Taxation of Private Pensions Schemes and their Beneficiaries’ which was published on 21 March 2018 and provides detailed insight into the UK taxation of all UK and non-UK pension schemes.
Babbé managing partner Andrew Laws, says: “Matthew is an established trusts and pensions lawyer with a wide range of expertise in the UK and offshore pensions world, evidenced not only by his extensive experience but also by his legal authorship. Matthew’s appointment represents the continued growth of our trusts and pensions practice and his knowledge and experience will be a valuable addition to our team.”
