Newly published figures from Legal 500 UK confirm Mourant Ozannes' position as the leading law firm in the Channel Islands. The 2011 legal directory rankings, which include feedback from clients and peers as well as independent research, show that Mourant Ozannes:
• Has more tier one rankings across the Channel Islands than any other law firm, with 13 tier one rankings out of 15 practice areas (Guernsey 6 from 7; Jersey 7 from 8)
• Has more lawyers listed as "Leading Individuals" across the Channel Islands than any other firm (17)
• Has the most tier one rankings in Jersey (7), an increase of two from last year
Tier one rankings are significant, as they demonstrate superior technical expertise and service excellence.
Clients commented that Mourant Ozannes "Looks after its clients royally and repeatedly impresses"; is "at the top of the table in terms of quality"; and "fields a good team on short notice and is sensible on fees".
Jonathan Rigby, Managing Partner, commented: "To receive such positive feedback from clients and researchers alike in this year's Legal 500 is particularly pleasing, as we are striving to be consistently recognised as the leading law firm offshore."
