    Daniel Richards did an incredible job and I was extremely impressed with him. New York General Counsel, special situations fund manager, 2015
    They worked extremely hard on what became an awkward transaction. Ogier had to go above and beyond the call of duty in terms of the time and effort that they had to put in, in order to get the transaction done. The quality of their work was very good. City law firm, 2013
    The whole Ogier team, in both the Luxembourg and the Jersey offices were fantastic thoughout the matter. They did really well... without a doubt we would use them again for the same type of things. Would we recommend to others? Definitely European private equity manager, 2012
