Mourant Ozannes is the largest law firm in the Channel Islands and the fourth largest offshore law firm in the world, according to a survey in legal publication The Lawyer.

The Lawyer's sixth annual survey of offshore law firms, which measures headcount, significant deals and clients, said: "Mourant Ozannes is the largest Channel Islands [law] firm by some margin."

The survey points to last year's successful merger between Mourant and Ozannes and recent senior hires which boost the firm's Cayman capabilities.

Mourant Ozannes' Managing Partner, Jonathan Rigby, commented:

"It has been a year of continued growth for Mourant Ozannes. Since the merger, as well as becoming the largest law firm in the Channel Islands, we have made a significant investment in our Cayman Islands practice through a number of strategic hires. More importantly, Mourant Ozannes has more top tier legal directory rankings than any other offshore law firm which reflects our continued commitment to delivering an exceptional service to our clients."
