Ogier makes two senior promotions in Guernsey Private Wealth team


Two members of Ogier’s Private Wealth team in Guernsey, Alice Bricogne and Chris Hards, have been promoted, to Counsel and Managing Associate respectively.Praised in the Legal 500 2020 for her ‘razor-sharp legal mind’, Bricogne specialises in advising family offices, trust companies and high net worth individuals on the creation, administration, and restructuring of all types of trusts and foundations, and also advising on contentious and regulatory matters. She also has a particular interest in charitable entities. 

As a barrister and associate tenant of 2 Bedford Row in London prior to joining Ogier, Bricogne practised at the UK Bar, appearing in courts throughout England as well as in the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland.

Hards is one the island’s few private wealth lawyers with real pensions and employee share scheme expertise. Chris started his career in the private wealth department of a top 20 City firm specialising in international trusts, tax and pensions, before moving to Guernsey in 2016. 

Hards provides advice on all aspects of trust and foundation law to individuals, fiduciaries and other service providers and is commendable for his considered and commercial approach to complex matters. Hards also has experience in advising on wills and probate, international pensions and the application of UK taxation to offshore individuals, corporates and trust structures.

Partner and Head of Ogier’s Private Wealth team in Guernsey Gavin Ferguson says: “Both Alice and Chris have proved themselves to be invaluable members of our Private Wealth team since joining in early 2017, being highly regarded among clients and colleagues across the Ogier group alike. Both Chris’s and Alice’s drive and vast knowledge have been instrumental in their achieving and surpassing the desired results for clients, whether that be in contentious or non-contentious matters, earning them the coveted ‘trusted adviser’ status.”
