Carey Olsen has been named Best Offshore Law Firm, in the Guernsey, Jersey and Isle of Man category, at the inaugural Wealth Adviser Awards in London in March. 

The Wealth Adviser Awards were established this year to bring together the leaders in global wealth management and to celebrate the accomplishments of the highest performing managers, advisers and service providers in 2012. 

Wealth Adviser’s 15,000 subscribers around the world vote for those service providers in private banks, independent financial advice providers, family offices, wealth management, fund management, taxation, trust, legal, accounting and technology firms. 

The voters decided that Carey Olsen, which has expanded its presence over the last 12 months to include the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands, adding to its established offices in Guernsey, Jersey and London, demonstrated excellence in legal services and a firm grasp of challenging issues, including growing regulatory demands, while focusing on generating results for investors. 

Carey Olsen chairman, John Kelleher, said: “We are delighted to have been named Best Offshore Law Firm and we are very grateful to those who voted for us. This achievement reinforces our reputation for delivering the highest quality legal services and is testament to the fact that our teams continue to work hard to provide outstanding expertise and results for our clients.” 

Carey Olsen was also recently named Offshore Law Firm of the Year in the Crown Dependencies at the Citywealth International Financial Centre Awards 2013. 

The winners are those judged to have excelled in achievement, innovation, expertise and service.
