Ogier has been shortlisted as Law Firm of the Year, EMEA, in the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards 2015.

The firm, which has offices in Jersey, Guernsey, Luxembourg, Cayman Islands, BVI and Hong Kong, won the International Law Firm of the Year title at the Magic Circle awards last year.

Ogier’s head of Private Client and Trusts, partner Sally Edwards, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted in this new award category. Citywealth connects global wealth management and private client experts while we, as the leading and largest dedicated non-contentious trust team in Jersey, work for trust companies and private clients in all major offshore locations.  

“2014 was a significant year for Ogier and its Private Client and Trusts practice when it repositioned itself as an independent law firm after the management buy-out of Ogier Fiduciary Services.  

“We are now in a very strong position to provide a dedicated legal service to our clients. We have, and continue to actively recruit, the best legal professionals to continue the growth and expertise of our practice.”

Citywealth’s Magic Circle Awards are held annually to find the best private wealth advisors and managers in the global industry. Entries are shortlisted by a judging panel of 10 global industry experts, followed by online voting which opens once the finalists have been announced. With 5,000 votes cast last year, UHNW individuals, family offices, intermediaries, trustees and private bankers have all participated to find past winners. Voting closes on 17th April and the winners will be announced in May
