Mourant Ozannes has maintained all rankings across its global network of offices in the latest edition of IFLR's guide to the world's leading financial law firms, with an impressive 33 lawyers recognised for excellence in their respective fields. The offshore guide ranks firms in the categories of financial & corporate and investment funds.

Global Managing Partner, Jonathan Rigby, said: "The IFLR is the leading corporate legal directory and is based on the opinions of clients and peers, so this result is a huge vote of confidence in the expertise of our corporate and investment funds teams.

"We continue to be instructed on many of the most high profile deals in the offshore market and, as a globally integrated firm, it's gratifying to see this reflected across our offices. We owe this success to the deep experience and collegiate ethos of our lawyers around the world, who work tirelessly to achieve the best outcome for our clients. I am exceedingly proud of all we've achieved so far this year, and would like to thank those who took the time to provide feedback on our services.

"The Channel Islands teams maintained their top tier rankings across the board, a position now held for seven consecutive years. Six lawyers from the Guernsey team were ranked in the guide, alongside 15 lawyers in Jersey.

The firm is also ranked highly for its BVI, Cayman and Hong Kong offices.

In the Cayman Islands, the firm maintained tier 2 rankings for both categories, with six lawyers ranked. The BVI team also maintained its rankings this year and had two lawyers praised in the guide. Four lawyers in the Hong Kong team were recognised, with the team maintaining their rankings in both categories.

The IFLR 1000 rankings are published annually in October, following hot on the heels of the firm's strong performance in the Legal 500 UK rankings. The independent research on which the rankings are based covers three key criteria: transactional evidence, peer feedback and client feedback.
