Several lawyers from Mourant Ozannes have been included in the ‘2010 Expert Guide to the World’s Leading Investment Funds Lawyers’, published this month by the Legal Media Group.

Mourant Ozannes partners from Jersey, as well as Guernsey and the Cayman Islands, have been selected, emphasising the firm’s strength in depth and industry knowledge in key international finance centres.

To be rated as “world leading”, Mourant Ozannes’ funds lawyers were nominated by clients and leading industry figures based on their work and reputation, followed by a review from a panel of impartial experts in legal centres worldwide.

The “world’s leading” list includes Mourant Ozannes partners Edward Devenport, Ben Robins and Jacqueline Richomme in Jersey, as well as Neal Lomax in Cayman, and Gavin Farrell, Peter Harwood, Paul Christopher and David Moore in Guernsey.

The Legal Media Group have been publishing international guides to individual lawyers in specific practice areas and jurisdictions for over 15 years, with a new edition of each Guide being published every two years.

Jonathan Rigby, Group Managing Partner at Mourant Ozannes, said:

“We are delighted that our funds partners from across the firm have been recognised in this way. We strive to be consistently recognised as the leading law firm offshore and for our funds lawyers to be rated as world leading is a fantastic achievement.”

On 1 June 2010 Mourant du Feu & Jeune and Ozannes, two of the leading law firms offshore, merged to create Mourant Ozannes. Mourant Ozannes draws on the heritage of two market leaders and has approximately 200 fee-earners and 50 partners practising from offices in the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey and London.
