Emma Lejeune has been developing a private client practice for over 12 years. Previously a Partner at Hassans, Emma went on to establish her own boutique private client and family office practice, Legacy Consulting, before selling the same to the firm and joining the Partnership. She began building her portfolio of private clients whilst working in the commercial department of the first firm she worked for, having built up good relationships with the founders and senior management of the corporate clients she dealt with. She has undertaken significant studies during the last 10 years, in particular, a diploma specialising in the advising of family offices and attending regular professional development events on international taxation, European standards, succession and the structuring of family offices amongst others.
Emma began her career in the corporate and commercial department, assisting corporate clients on all aspects of their business set up in Gibraltar. She formed part of the gaming team assisting clients with their gaming applications in Gibraltar as well as ensuring regulatory compliance. Emma has also assisted the banking team with the application for emoney licences as well as the acquisition of emoney companies by other corporates. She is therefore familiar with all aspects of the application process as well as regulatory requirements and in addition has advised on all the corporate matters relating to each setup.
Emma recently joined ISOLAS LLP following the acquisition of Legacy Consulting by ISOLAS. She joins the Private Client team and is now part of the team driving the firm's family office offering forward.
Emma has also handled private equity transactions, whereby investment has been raised by a business resulting in the issuance of a new series of shares in the company. She is able to advise and assist with the terms of the investment proposal, relevant subscription agreements, drafting of the shareholders agreement, making the requisite amendments to the company's articles of association and producing any other documentation ancillary thereto.
