Seven lawyers at Mourant have been recognised in Legal Week’s ‘Private Client Global Elite 2018’ list of 250 leading lawyers around the world.
Guernsey Partners Jeremy Wessels, Christopher Edwards and Matthew Guthrie have been named alongside partners in Jersey, Edward Devenport, Jonathan Speck, Bruce Lincoln and Giles Corbin. The firm has more lawyers listed than any other offshore law firm for the second consecutive year.
Mourant Global Managing Partner, Jonathan Rigby, said: “This is an excellent result for our International Trusts and Private Client group, and is testament to the strength and commitment of our leading lawyers who have each made considerable contributions to their field of practice. Our global team continues to go from strength to strength, and winning international and independent recognition in this way puts them, and the wider firm, in a fantastic position to continue to drive the practice and bring leading, globally-minded services and solutions to clients.”
The Private Client Global Elite list launched in 2017 and serves as a global directory of the world’s highly respected private client and trust disputes practitioners, as well as rising stars within the industry.
