Mike Sevant

1951 – 2022

We are sad to announce that Mike Sevant, former Managing Director of Spoor & Fisher Jersey, passed away on 9 August 2022.

Mike played a key role in the development of the firm, joining soon after its establishment by Laurie Hart in 1977, and it is largely thanks to his dedication (and the unstinting support of his wife, Angela) that Spoor & Fisher Jersey evolved into the highly successful practice it is today.

In a career spanning over forty years, Mike worked tirelessly to ensure that clients received the best possible service, and his sound, practical advice, combined with a willingness to meet challenges and find solutions, gave rise to the firm’s unrivalled reputation for reliability and expertise.

Friendly and approachable, energetic and knowledgeable, Mike was extremely popular with both staff and clients, and had a hands-on involvement in practically every aspect of office life.

In a much expanded IP profession, Mike stood out as a unique character, and will be much missed by those who had the privilege to work with him, as well as his extensive network of friends and contacts around the world.
