Ogier has advised First Names Group on matters of Jersey and BVI law relating to its agreement, subject to regulatory approval, to acquire Nautilus Trust Company.
The acquisition of the independent trust and corporate services provider will increase First Names Group’s headcount in Jersey to more than 300 and add to its private client offering in Hong Kong and London.
The Ogier team comprised of corporate partner Raulin Amy, senior associates Saraid Taylor and Wendy Walker (BVI law), and associate Rebekah Agyeman. Ogier worked alongside King & Wood Mallesons, who led the transaction and also advised on matters of Hong Kong law.
Raulin Amy commented: “We are delighted once again to help First Names with its acquisition of Nautilus and we have no doubt that First Names will continue to go from strength to strength in Jersey and elsewhere.”
