A considerable volume of international financial business is carried on in Guernsey, a near independent jurisdiction with close constitutional links to Britain about to celebrate the 800th anniversary of its status. Guernsey law is distinct from English law, drawing on its own history and traditions as well as modern English legal principles and those of other jurisdictions. Laws of Guernsey is the first textbook of modern times to introduce the core areas of Guernsey law and court procedure. It is essential reading for the many individuals and entities with business either in Guernsey or governed by Guernsey law. It will be of particular interest and assistance to lawyers from other jurisdictions concerned with Guernsey law issues, whether litigation, succession, insurance, employment or anything else; likewise the book will assist insurers, bankers, trustees and financial services professionals generally. The book includes a foreword written by the Bailiff of Guernsey, the Island's senior judge. The following principal areas are introduced: Company and commercial law; trust law; income tax law; law of succession; property law; employment law; health and safety at work law; tort law; contract law; civil procedure and injunctions; criminal law and procedure; anti-money laundering legislation.
