Ferbrache & Farrell LLP has been recommended in four practice areas in Guernsey in the Legal 500 United Kingdom 2022 rankings, reflecting the quality of their legal services, testimony of their clients and the lawyers they have in these fields.
One of the leading directories for the legal industry, the Legal 500 has ranked the firm in commercial property, corporate and M&A, dispute resolution and investment funds. The firm has nine lawyers from all departments named in the guide, with two recognised as leading individuals, one in the next generation lawyers group and one rising star.
The Legal 500 named head of dispute resolution Advocate Martin Jones a Next Generation Partner, while managing partner Advocate Alastair Hargreaves and Advocate Gavin Farrell achieved Leading Individual status, respectively for Commercial Property and Corporate and M&A. Advocate Farrell is also the only Guernsey lawyer to remain in both of the publication’s Halls of Fame – for Banking & Finance and for Investment Funds.
The firm’s commercial property team retained its listing in Tier 2, as a premier property practice, headed Advocate Hargreaves, with Anna Douglass, solicitor and counsel, being a key lawyer.
The firm’s corporate team, headed by Advocate Farrell (pictured), with key lawyer and counsel Helen McGeoch, has also received an outstanding Tier 3 result. A separate Tier 3 ranking was also awarded to the firm’s corporate team in the practice area of investment funds.
The dispute resolution team headed by Advocate Jones has also received a Tier 3 rating, with its key lawyers Alison Antill and Robert Breckon receiving a notable mention.
‘The 2022 UK Legal 500 results are tremendous and reflect the hard work of the team and our commitment to a first class client service experience,’ said Advocate Hargreaves.
‘It also reflects the cross-jurisdictional knowledge and recognition of our team members, which is very impressive for a boutique medium size firm approaching its sixth year in operation. Our firm is very proud to be amongst most, if not all, firms which are long-established global offshore practices. We are extremely proud of these achievements, both at firm and individuals’ levels, and will continue to work together to best help our clients.’
The Legal 500 UK ranks law firms after a thorough and independent research process, which includes testimonials from clients, as well as information provided by the firms themselves.
