The firm’s Dispute Resolution, Employment, Insurance and Investment Funds teams were all promoted in the Legal 500 rankings, which are compiled from submissions and thousands of interviews with clients including general counsel and private practice lawyers.
Advocate Marcus Leese, the firm’s managing partner in Guernsey who leads the Banking team which is described by client feedback as “a cut above the competition”, said that the directory reflected the strength, breadth and growth of Ogier.
He said: “Seeing recognition for 19 of our team in the directory reflects our continued growth and our strength across all levels of experience within Ogier.
“This recognition and the promotions in our rankings are down to hard work and dedication to client service right across the firm from partners to our associates, paralegals and business services teams.
“It is also extremely pleasing to see that our strategic themes of responsiveness and innovation are repeated in so many of the client quotes cited by Legal 500.”
