Claire Faulds, now returned from her role as Acting Supreme Court Judge in the Falkland Islands, has been appointed Legal Counsel at Equiom Trust Company Limited
The appointment is one of the most senior made by the company since its foundation in December 2006, when members of the management team, of what was then Anglo Irish Trust Company Limited, led a management buyout to form Equiom.
