Ogier’s Richard Laignel has been named as one of the UK’s very best young private client practitioners.

Richard is one of just two Jersey lawyers to feature in eprivateclient’s latest UK Top 35 Under 35, the annual list of leading young private client practitioners in the UK and Crown Dependencies.

Richard was recently promoted to Managing Associate in Ogier’s Jersey Private Wealth team. He advises a wide range of professional trustees, intermediaries, family offices and private clients on the establishment, operation and restructuring of trusts and the establishment of private trust company structures.

Alongside his technical excellence, Richard is described by clients as “very personable and professional, he makes complex matters simpler and more understandable”.

Global Head of Private Wealth James Campbell said: “Earlier in the year we were delighted to see five of our team among the top young private client practitioners in the Channel Islands. For Richard to now be listed among the best in the UK is fantastic recognition of a true rising star and an endorsement of our support for the development of our people.”
