PRESS RELEASE

NEW ENGLISH PROPERTY LAW PRACTICE IN THE CHANNEL ISLANDS

 

On 3rd December 2001 Mason & Co. set up practice in Guernsey to meet the demands of offshore clients with UK Property requirements.

Shelagh Mason, a former senior Commercial property Partner at Edge Ellison, now Hammond Suddards Edge and the seventh largest practice in the UK, is setting up practice on the Island after two years as Chief Executive of a property development and investment company in Guernsey.

Building on over twenty year’s experience in the industry the Firm brings the level of experience and expertise in property transactions in the UK usually sourced in the mainland enabling clients to instruct locally in complex high value commercial property transactions in the UK. With a track record of acting for major developers, plc companies, banks and individuals Shelagh Mason Senior Partner of Mason & Co. said: -

"I am very much looking forward to returning to private practice, building on the excellent experience of property development and investment from the other side of the fence."She adds;"We are able to provide a high level of bespoke service to clients based in the Channel Islands to provide a fully integrated approach to the provision of legal services to those involved in property development and investment in the UK. Our expertise is such that we can satisfy all levels of property requirements of clients without the need for trips back to the mainland and of course the added advantage of services delivered off shore not being subject to VAT."

The new practice is based in Guernsey but has strong links with contacts in the UK to take advantage of the ever-changing market. With increased investment in property both by private and institutional investors and indeed the reassessment of the property exposure of many major funds, Shelagh is convinced the timing of the launch of the new service is opportune.
