Two new advocates sworn in at Royal Court
CRAIG CORDLE and Robin Cowling have been sworn in as advocates of the Royal Court of Guernsey.
Advocate Cordle, an investment funds and asset management specialist, is a partner at Ogier.
He joined the firm’s Guernsey team from a London firm in November 2016 – so qualified in the minimum possible time having passed the necessary exams, completed the ‘Certificat d’études juridiques et normandes’ at the University of Caen, and satisfied the two-year residency requirement.
‘I first began working with Guernsey funds as a trainee lawyer in the City in 2006, so my admission to the Guernsey Bar is very important to me,’ said Advocate Cordle.
‘I’m very grateful to have been supported by my friends and colleagues at Ogier, particularly in our growing funds and asset management team.’
His highlights this year include advising on the launch of the £202m. Hipgnosis fund investing in songs and musical IP rights, and on the recent launch of Merian Chrysalis’ £100m. fund.
Advocate Cowling joined AFR Advocates in October 2015, having been called to the Bar of England and Wales in 2012. Born in Guernsey and a former Grammar School student, his practice encompasses general civil litigation, including personal injury, contractual disputes, disputes over ownership and general tortious/negligence disputes. He also practices in family law, focusing on childcare matters, divorce and ancillary relief.
Advocate Mark Ferbrache, AFR’s senior partner, congratulated his colleague and said: ‘He will continue to develop his professional career within AFR focusing on contentious civil and family related matters.’
