Ogier was named Regional/Offshore Law Firm of the Year at the prestigious Legal Business Awards in London last Friday after impressing judges with its record of rapid growth and technical innovation.

The awards recognise the leading players and teams in the legal industry and are one of the key events in the legal calendar.

Since the start of the year, Ogier has announced the arrival of three new partners (one through promotion, and two through lateral hires) amongst 31 legal hires across the group, and has advised on: the largest UK real estate transaction on record; the first light-touch restructuring undertaken in the BVI; the landmark sale of Cayman National Corporation Ltd, and the largest two transactions conducted by way of a court-sanctioned Jersey Scheme of Arrangement.

Global Head of Corporate Simon Dinning, who was part of the Ogier team at the awards event, said: “Winning awards of this stature is a clear marker of where Ogier stands in the marketplace, and we are delighted to have been recognised in this way.

“We continue to grow in terms of the number of partners, our overall headcount, and in terms of our reputation within the market.”

Simon attended the event with partner Rachael Reynolds, counsel Rachel Richardson, associate Jessica Dewsnip and Head of Client Development Bill McGilivray at the Grosvenor House Hotel last night.

The Regional/Offshore Firm of the Year award highlights the UK-based regional or offshore firm that has made the most significant progress over the past year in advancing its strategy, based on evidence of effective leadership, impressive financial performance and increased market share.
