Carey Olsen’s position as a top-tier law firm in Jersey has been reaffirmed by leading legal directory Chambers UK.

The firm’s trust and fiduciary practice has maintained its long-standing top-tier position and is ranked in band one. It advises on both contentious and non-contentious trust matters and was commended for its “accurate, responsive, up-to-date advice.”

Carey Olsen’s dispute resolution group, which was recognised as having one of the largest litigation teams on the Island, maintained its number one ranking. The directory highlighted that the group advises across a range of work, but trust litigation is noted as an area of considerable strength.

Carey Olsen’s corporate and finance group was praised for its expertise in public and private M&A, listings, corporate restructurings, schemes of arrangement, joint ventures and bank financing. One interviewee states: “We appreciate their efficiency and attentiveness.” The directory also recognises that Carey Olsen “maintains a strong funds practice with a range of expertise.”

Carey Olsen chairman John Kelleher said: “We are delighted that the directory has recognised our growing international reputation and the range of specialists we have in our practice areas. This reinforces our position as a leading law firm in the Channel Islands and we are pleased to have received such positive endorsements from our clients who participated in this research.”
