Carey Olsen has maintained its longstanding position as the top ranking offshore legal adviser for the number of AIM clients it advises according to the latest AIM Advisers Rankings Guide (published January 2015).  

The latest guide pushes Carey Olsen decisively up to second place overall based on the number of AIM clients it advises with 45. It continues to be the only offshore law firm to feature in the top five table with the other four places being taken by international onshore law firms.   

Carey Olsen retains fourth place for client market capitalisation, at £3,929 million, for the period under review. The firm is in first place in the industrials client table in terms of market capitalisation and, for client numbers, Carey Olsen ranks second in the financial table, third in industrial, fifth in basic materials and consumer services and sixth in the consumer goods.  

Carey Olsen senior partner, Graham Hall, said: “The rankings demonstrate the strength of our corporate offering and reaffirm our position as the legal adviser of choice for AIM companies.”   

The AIM Advisers Rankings Guide, published by Adviser Rankings Limited, contains details of institutional advisers and their quoted AIM clients. The rankings are drawn from UK and Channel Island-domiciled companies and from the growing number of overseas companies joining AIM. The latest update follows the Q4 2014 main market rankings guide, where Carey Olsen was listed as the leading offshore law firm advising LSE clients (Corporate Adviser Rankings Guide, Q4 2014).
