Ogier has more ranked individuals recognised in the influential Chambers directory than any other Jersey firm and the firm remains top ranked in Corporate, Banking and Finance, Private Client and Trusts and Property work.
The independent directory recognises 21 of Ogier's Jersey team – and places Edward Mackereth (dispute resolution), Steve Meiklejohn (trusts) and Chris Renouf (property) in the very highest tiers reserved for eminent practitioners, star individuals and senior statesmen.
No firm has as many lawyers ranked from their Corporate and Finance, Private Client and Trusts and Property teams as Ogier, and the results see partner Richard Daggett, counsel Katherine Neal and managing associate Josephine Howe individually ranked for the first time.
There were also promotions up the rankings for: Sally Edwards, Jonathan Hughes and Julie Melia (Band One); Katrina Edge (Band Two); and Matthew Shaxson (Band Three).
Client feedback for the team included praise for Katrina Edge ("focused on delivering what can sometimes be complicated advice in an easy-to-understand format"), Raulin Amy ("commercial, pragmatic and a brilliant problem solver"), Simon Dinning ("technically excellent, and epitomises the commercial and solution-based approach that I look for"), Edward Mackereth ("he is just the right mix – tough, bright and sensible"), Katherine Neal ("someone you can really rely on"), Josephine Howe ("faultless technical knowledge"), Jonathan Hughes ("a very knowledgeable problem solver") and Julie Melia ("amazing – one of the best lawyers I have dealt with").
Raulin Amy, the Practice Partner of Ogier's Jersey team, said: "To see more of our team recognised than any of the other law firms is a testament not just to our ability to attract, develop and retain the best and brightest, but also to the enormous talent and dedication of the teams of associates across all of our service lines.
"These are enormously impressive results, and it is particularly pleasing to see client feedback consistently referring to the mix of technical expertise and commitment to client service that we value at Ogier."
