Ogier has acted as Jersey legal adviser for Index Ventures in relation to the launch of its latest fund, Index Ventures VIII, which recently closed at $550 million. 

Index Ventures VIII will continue to invest in seed and venture capital investments primarily in private European, United States and Israeli early stage companies. Partner Niamh Lalor led the Ogier Jersey team assisted by senior associate Joanna Christensen and associate Tara Kapur. Niamh Lalor said "We were delighted to work with Index Ventures on its largest venture fund to date. The successful close of this latest venture fund, following a $700m growth fund raised last year, is testament to Index Ventures’ position as a pre-eminent European venture firm.”
