Ogier has been named ‘Best Offshore Law Firm’ at the Eleventh Annual WealthBriefing European Awards 2023.
Showcasing the best firms in the European region, the awards have been designed to recognise outstanding organisations grouped by specialism and geography which the prestigious panel of independent judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during the last year.’
Each of these categories is highly contested and is subject to a rigorous process before the ultimate winner is selected by the judges.
The WealthBriefing European Awards are part of a global programme run by WealthBriefing and its sister publications WealthBriefingAsia and Family Wealth Report, encompassing all of the world’s major wealth management centres.
Participants around the world recognise that winning awards is particularly important in these challenging times, as it gives clients reassurance in the solidity and sustainability of the winner’s business and operating model.
Global head of Private Wealth Matt Guthrie said: “It’s fantastic to receive recognition like this from WealthBriefing, who provide an independent view on the work we do at Ogier day in, day out to deliver excellent client service, and a great place to work for our team. This is excellent news for our Trusts Advisory Group and we’re very pleased with the result.”
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: “The organisations and individuals who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to the winners and to those who have put so much work into each winning submission.
“These awards were independently and expertly judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which were answered by focusing on the client experience rather than purely quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognise the very best operators in European wealth management, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process – such that the awards truly reflect excellence in European wealth management.”
