Turnbull-Kemp was one of three new partners appointed to the firm, which currently has 50 partners and operates offices in Guernsey and throughout the UK.

The only external appointment, he will join the firm’s London office along with Tim Gregory, who has been promoted to partner-level after joining Saffery in 1993 as a graduate.

Elaine McInroy, who was formerly with Ernst & Young before joining the mid-tier firm in 1999, has also been made a partner in Saffery’s Edinburgh office.

The new appointments were welcomed by managing partner Rob Elliot, who singled out Turnbull-Kemp for particular praise, saying he would bring a ‘significant new area of expertise’ to the firm.
