Institutional client review:

Craig is commercial, pragmatic and solution oriented in his thinking. He is a key part of why Dickinson Gleeson are a 'go to' for advice and document drafting. Craig is approachable and always on hand to talk through a client matter no matter how complex.

Private client review:

Craig and the team at Dickinson Gleeson are not just top quality advisors, they value relationships and provide a first class client experience with every engagement. They make every engagement feel like it is the most important one that they are working on, no matter how busy they might be, or how tight the timeframes are to finalise the transaction that they are opining on. I cannot recommend their services enough.

Peer review:

I have known Craig Swart of Dickinson Gleeson Advocates, Jersey for a few years now and we have worked on quite a few matters, largely non-contentious. Craig is very accessible, always available on the telephone or quickly by email and indeed in person to discuss matters that arise. He’s very efficient in suggesting a way forward in a no nonsense type manner.

Invsolvent trusts: defining the duties of trustees

Craig Swart continues to advise one of the trustees in the long running saga involving two ‘insolvent’ Jersey trusts. The trustees sought directions in early 2015 as to the ongoing administration of the trusts. The case is ground-breaking in that it defines the duties of trustees dealing with “insolvent” trusts; the competing rights of creditors and beneficiaries; and the fetters on fiduciaries’ (including protectors’) powers that arise. It also confirms that the court’s supervisory jurisdiction is wide ranging permitting it to impose a “winding up” type regime as it has now done in relation to both trusts.
