What We Do
The Law Officers of the Crown provide a range of legal services covering issues that would be dealt with by both central and local government in larger jurisdictions, primarily for:
- The Crown,
- The States of Guernsey,
- The States of Alderney,
- The Chief Pleas of Sark,
- Other public service clients such as the GFSC.
The two Law Officers, HM Procureur (HM Attorney General) and HM Comptroller (HM Solicitor General), are supported by five distinct teams:
- Criminal Prosecution,
- Civil Litigation,
- Commercial Law,
- Legislative Drafting & Advisory,
- Civil Advisory & Legislation
In addition to the above, HM Procureur holds the office of HM Receiver General and HM Comptroller holds the office of HM Deputy Receiver General.
The Law Officers of the Crown do not provide a legal service to members of the public. This is provided by the private firms of the Guernsey Bar. Please click on this link for a list of local legal practices.
