A highly respected lawyer who transferred around £30,000 of an elderly client's funds into her own bank account has been jailed for three years.

Julie Harrigan, 36, was an award-winning senior associate at the offshore law firm Collas Crill in Jersey at the time of the offence, which came to light in January 2018.

The Royal Court in Jersey was told Harrigan made 46 bank transfers into her own account over a two year period from that of a 76-year-old nursing-home resident who lived in the UK.

Harrigan, who earned £60,000 a year, was exposed after tax workers at her firm noticed discrepancies within the estate of the woman - referred to as client A - who had been deemed unable to look after her own affairs.
