Another new arrival at Ogier's growing Guernsey trusts team

Advocate Polly Lister has joined Ogier's fast-growing Guernsey Private Client and Trusts team as Counsel.

Polly is a Guernsey-qualified advocate who has previously worked at another offshore firm and more recently in an in-house role for an international private wealth and banking group.

She joins partner Advocate Gavin Ferguson and senior associates Chris Hards and Alice Bricogne, who also joined the team in the last six months.

Gavin, who heads Ogier's Guernsey Private Client and Trusts team, said: "We are delighted to welcome Polly to our growing team.  Polly's extensive experience specialising in all areas of non-contentious fiduciary work both in private practice and in-house further strengthens Ogier's leading Guernsey Private Client team"

"Polly is also the tenth lawyer to join Ogier's Guernsey team in the last 12 months, underlining our growth strategy and the success of our busy team here in the island."

Ogier's Global Private Client and Trusts team was named International Legal Team of the Year by STEP at the Private Client Awards last week.

The independently-judged awards recognise firms that provide integrated approach across multiple jurisdictions, and which take a proactive approach to innovation and the publication of thought leadership content. Ogier won the mid-sized firm category over four other shortlisted international firms.
