Mourant Ozannes has maintained its position as the leading offshore law firm in the Channel Islands, with more top tier rankings across all legal directories than any other firm, following the publication of the Chambers UK directory on 2 November.
The 2013 edition of the legal directory ranks law firms based on technical expertise and client service and the researchers who compile the listings have awarded Mourant Ozannes four top tier positions, more than any other Channel Island law firm.
Tier one rankings are significant because they demonstrate superior technical expertise and service excellence. The Chambers UK 2013 directory comments that Mourant Ozannes' lawyers “enjoy a reputation for being extremely thorough, responsive and well balanced in their opinions.”
Mourant Ozannes Jersey has top tier rankings in Corporate & Finance, Investment Funds and Dispute Resolution and in Guernsey is in a tier of its own in Dispute Resolution.
Guernsey Managing Partner Robert Shepherd said: “We are delighted to have maintained our position as the leading offshore law firm across the Channel Islands. Legal directories provide an important benchmark for the industry as they are based on independent research and client feedback. These results published in Chambers UK, underline our market-leading position and high levels of client service.”
Jersey Managing Partner Daniel Birtwistle added: “I am delighted that Mourant Ozannes has maintained its top tier rankings. It is testament to the hard work of the team and our commitment to our clients.”

With more than 130 full time researchers who interview thousands of lawyers and their clients around the world, its publications are considered to be amongst the most accurate and reliable reviews of the world’s leading law firms and lawyers.
