Mourant Ozannes has been recognised as the leading law firm in the Channel Islands by research directory, Chambers Europe 2011.

Published online this month, Chambers Europe ranks law firms for their performance over the past year based on extensive feedback from clients and peers.

Mourant Ozannes is the only law firm in the Channel Islands to be ranked in the top tier for its Corporate & Finance, Investment Funds, Dispute Resolution and Employment work in both Jersey and Guernsey.

This includes standalone top tier rankings for the firm's Guernsey Dispute Resolution and Jersey Investment Funds practices.

Chambers Europe also recommends 43 Mourant Ozannes lawyers across the Channel Islands, more than any other law firm.

Jonathan Rigby, Managing Partner of Mourant Ozannes, commented:

“To be rated so highly by one of Europe's leading directories is testament to the continued emphasis we place on providing our clients with the best service possible. The number of top tier rankings received from Chambers Europe underlines our strength-in-depth and the deep industry knowledge and expertise of our lawyers across Guernsey, Jersey, London and the Cayman Islands.”

Robert Shepherd, Mourant Ozannes' Guernsey Managing Partner, said:

“These rankings once again demonstrate our position as one of the leading law firms offshore. It follows significant recognition from all the major legal directories over the past year, which sees Mourant Ozannes with more top tier legal directory rankings than any other offshore law firm.”

Earlier this month, Mourant Ozannes was awarded the ‘Offshore Law Firm of the Year’ accolade at the Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence 2011 for its expertise, notable achievements over the past 12 months, impressive strategic growth and commitment to client service excellence.
