Five private client specialists from Collas Crill have been included in the Private Client Global Elite Directory 2019.

Collas Crill partners Ben Harvard, Christian Hay, Damian James and Kellyann Ozouf have all been recognised for the third consecutive year.

Associate Gregory Haddow has been nominated under the ‘Ones to watch’ category.

Launched in 2017 and compiled by Legal Week and The American Lawyer, the list aims to identify the top specialist trusts and private client lawyers with an international reach.

The 2019 edition received more than 8,000 entries, resulting in recommendations for 293 ‘Global Elite’ lawyers and 136 ‘Ones to Watch’.

Those who are named as ‘Global Elite’ or ‘Ones to Watch’ are determined by the number of nominations they receive from industry peers, the depth and breadth of their experience, high levels of client service and their international network, including the range of jurisdictions qualified in and their participation in cross-border work.

Christian Hay, Managing Partner at Collas Crill Guernsey, commented: ‘We are absolutely thrilled to have been included in Legal Week’s Private Client Global Elite Directory 2019 for the third year in a row. ‘A special congratulations to Gregory who is one of a handful of associates who made the list. We would also like to thank all who recommended us.’
