This edition of the FIRE Starters Magazine is a particularly special one as it follows the first ever FIRE Future Thought Leaders Essay Competition.
The quality of essays submitted made choosing a winner very difficult, but ultimately the panel was very pleased to choose Cailtin Bruce of Collas Crill’s essay “Désastre in Paradise – Fraud and Insolvency in Jersey, Channel Islands”. Caitlin’s essay stood out not only for its coherent summary of the law of désastre and the windingup of Jersey companies, but also with its unique approach in tackling the question by also looking at how Jersey trust law widens the role that insolvency practitioners play in the detection and remedying of fraud in Jersey. Caitlin not only holds the esteemed title of the first ever winner of FIRE’s Future Thought Leaders Essay Competition and receives free tickets to the FIRE Starters Global Summit in Dublin and FIRE International in Vilamoura, Portugal, but also had a unique opportunity to present a summary of her winning essay at the FIRE Starters Global Summit.
Congratulations are also due to both James Saunders at New Square Chambers and David Johnson of PCB Byrne, who came second and third respectively.
