Carey Olsen is the only offshore law firm to be recognised in the top 10 by the total number of FTSE 100 clients, according to the most recent (Q4 2012) All Market Edition of the Morningstar Professional Services Rankings Guide.
Morningstar’s latest report highlights the firm’s “progress on last quarter’s figures” with its move up one place, into the top 10 of the FTSE 100 table, alongside UK and international law firms. Carey Olsen also continues to be the leading offshore legal adviser to London Stock Market (LSE) listed companies.
The firm retains its position in the top 20 for FTSE 250 clients following substantial gains last quarter. In the AIM table, the firm maintains the lead, in third position overall, as the only offshore law firm ranked in the top 10.
Alex Ohlsson, Carey Olsen’s Jersey managing partner, said: “Our lead in the offshore legal advisers table and our position as the only offshore law firm in the FTSE 100 top ten is testament to our market-leading position and the ongoing expansion of our corporate practice. The results show the dedication of our corporate team and their commitment to client service.”
