Ogier’s Jersey property team has been ranked by independent market commentator Chambers as being “in a league of its own” for a record seventh year, with the team remaining the only Jersey property practice to be ranked top tier across all leading directories.
Head of Local Legal Services Jonathan Hughes (pictured) retains his band one ranking and is described as “a seriously good lawyer”, while Katharine Marshall is ranked, with a client saying her “ability to deal with complex transactions is excellent”. Jonathan Anderson and Sarah Parish are associates to watch, and senior statesperson Chris Renouf has “an amazing reputation in the market”, with senior associate Laura Shirreffs described in client feedback in Legal 500 2023 as “very impressive.”
Ogier’s full-service Property, Planning and Construction law team acts for buyers, sellers, developers and financiers, providing advice on the purchase, sale or lease of commercial and residential properties on the island. The Commercial Property team is well known for executing some of the largest and most complex commercial property transactions with accuracy and speed, providing a responsive, constructive and commercially aware client service for large and small businesses. The team works for local landlords, tenants, developers and financiers as well as institutional investors of international repute.
Head of Local Legal Services Jonathan Hughes said: “That Chambers still considers Ogier to be the only team of offshore property, planning and construction lawyers and conveyancers to merit a top-tier rating after seven years really is an achievement to be proud of. We are particularly pleased to see that Chambers recognises our ‘notable expertise’ in planning, leasing and property investment in addition to our market-leading advice on commercial and residential development, financing and transactional work.”
