Ogier has been named Legal 500 UK Offshore Law Firm of the Year 2020, a firm-record fifth time it has received the accolade from a major industry body in one year.

Other industry bodies which have named Ogier Offshore Law Firm of the Year in 2019 include Asian Legal Business, The Lawyer, Wealthbriefing and Legal Business.

The award was decided after months of thorough research into the offshore legal market, including interviews with in-house counsel, law firms and sets in the UK to pin-point the most capable, expert practitioners and firms operating at the top of their game across a number of different business sectors.

Ogier Global Managing Partner Edward Mackereth said: “This is fantastic news for us as a firm, and is a reflection of the exceptional contributions and talent across all of Ogier’s teams.

“Our employer brand is centred around the challenge to “be extraordinary” in everything we do, and feedback from clients highlights that it is this constant focus on finding the best way of doing things and challenging the status quo that is setting us apart.

“We’re very proud to have received recognition from such prestigious industry bodies, and now to have been named Offshore Firm of the Year by Legal 500 UK is the perfect end to an exceptional year for Ogier.”
