Angela CalnanPartner at Collas Crill
Angela Calnan is Head of Collas Crill's multi-award winning International Private Client & Trust Department in Guernsey – now one of the largest teams of its type in Guernsey and ranked Tier 1 by E-Private Client.
Angela's core strengths are in establishing, reorganising and winding up Guernsey trust and foundation structures (including pension and gratuity schemes) and also assisting trustees in navigating the administration of those structures in accordance with their fiduciary duties.
As a former litigator prior to moving to Guernsey, Angela is great at spotting thorny issues early and assisting trustees and beneficiaries to resolve conflict before things escalate into litigation.
Angela has been a Solicitor of England & Wales since 2003 and an Advocate of the Royal Court of Guernsey since 2020.
Day to day, Angela's caseload is very varied. Recently she has established private trust companies and private trustee foundations with multiple underlying trusts and companies for both domestic and international families in conjunction with some of the UK's leading City firms. She has established multi-million dollar pensions and end of service gratuity schemes for multiple UAE companies and she has also assisted trustees in deliberating "momentous decisions" and mediating the interests of warring beneficiaries.
