Carey Olsen has been awarded the Full Service Law Firm of the Year award for the Channel Islands by ACQ, a premier global mergers and acquisitions magazine.

Launched in 2004, ACQ magazine is a respected publication servicing the corporate finance sector. The ACQ Global Awards have presented accolades to the business world’s best firms for the last eight years. ACQ asked its readership to nominate companies that warranted special recognition for their commitment to excellence and quality on a global scale.

“The winners represent the very best in their field from around the world and Carey Olsen truly deserves the accolade of Full Service Law Firm of the Year,” said Jake Robson, Editor in Chief of ACQ.

Carey Olsen chairman John Kelleher said: “Awards such as this cement the firm’s reputation for providing excellent client service and legal advice across Guernsey, Jersey and London.”

Carey Olsen continues to be ranked highly for corporate advice by other leading publications. The Morningstar Professional Services Rankings Guide places Carey Olsen in the top five law firms by the number of London Stock Exchange (LSE) and AIM clients it advises. It is the only offshore law firm to be ranked alongside UK legal advisers in the top five by Morningstar (Source: The Morningstar Rankings Guide, Q2 2012 report).
