17 private client experts spanning Ogier’s Asia, Caribbean and Channel Island offices have been recognised as industry leaders in the 2019 Private Client Global Elite – more than any other offshore law firm.

Private Client Global Elite is a highly respected global directory of the world’s top private client and trust and estates litigation talent, as well as rising stars within the industry.

Ogier’s head of Private Wealth, James Campbell, said: “Having so many of our team listed among the world’s elite lawyers advising UHNW clients reflects the breadth of our expertise across multiple locations. We look after the private wealth requirements of some very large international families, which requires a joined up approach from Ogier in Jersey, Cayman, Guernsey, BVI and Hong Kong, so it’s particularly pleasing to see that the depth of private wealth experience in all our Private Wealth jurisdictions is recognised.”

Issues of succession planning, inter-generational wealth management and the sustainability of structures for the future are prominent in the achievements of the Ogier experts listed in the Private Client Global Elite including Fraser Allister and Anthony Partridge in Cayman, Alice Bricogne and Gavin Ferguson in Guernsey, Wisdom Hon in Hong Kong and James Campbell, Sally Edwards, Josephine Howe, Steve Meiklejohn and Henry Wickham in Jersey.

The expertise of contentious trusts experts is also recognised with the inclusion of Ogier’s disputes specialists across Asia, the Caribbean and Europe including Cayman partners Rachael Reynolds and Jennifer Fox, Brian Lacy in the BVI, Simon Davies in Guernsey, Edward Mackereth and Nick Williams in Jersey and Edwin Gomez in Hong Kong.

Rachael Reynolds, who heads Ogier’s global Dispute Resolution team, said: “We deal with large complex and cross-border matters. Being able to rely on a team of exceptionally strong litigators across our international locations, particularly when cases are technically demanding, is essential.”
