Mourant Ozannes has once again emerged as the Channel Islands' leading law firm, according to newly released figures from Chambers UK 2012, a leading legal directory that ranks law firms based on technical expertise and client service excellence.

The publication's researchers have awarded more top tier rankings to Mourant Ozannes than any other law firm in the Channel Islands. Chambers UK also lists 32 lawyers from Mourant Ozannes as "Ranked Individuals", the highest number of any law firm across the two islands.

It completes a hat-trick of top tier awards for Mourant Ozannes in the past month, with two other legal directories, Legal 500 UK and IFLR1000, awarding the firm with the highest number of tier one rankings in Guernsey and Jersey as well.

In Jersey, Mourant Ozannes' Investment Funds practice has received a stand alone top tier ranking, with the researcher noting "…this large team dominates the Jersey market". The firm is also given tier one rankings for Corporate & Finance and Dispute Resolution, with clients commenting that the firm "…deserves its place at the top of the rankings".

Jonathan Rigby, Managing Partner of Mourant Ozannes, said: "A top tier ranking takes into account feedback from clients and peers and denotes greater strength-in-depth, technical expertise and client service excellence than other law firms in the rankings. We are delighted therefore to be seen as the leading law firm in the Channel Islands by Chambers UK."

Mourant Ozannes has more top tier rankings in the major legal directories than any other offshore law firm (Chambers UK, Chambers Global, Chambers Europe, Legal 500 UK, IFLR1000 and PLC Which Lawyer?). Ends.
