Ogier named best law firm for second year at Private Equity Wire Awards


09 March 2023


2 min read

Ogier has been named Best Law Firm – Fund Domicile at the Private Equity Wire European Awards 2023, taking home the award for the second consecutive year.

The awards recognise excellence among service providers in Europe's private equity industry and voting is conducted via an online poll of Private Equity Wire's readers. More than 30,000 votes were cast this year.

"2022 was a year of two halves for the private equity industry. The start of the year saw a continuation of the record-breaking deal activity seen during 2021, but towards the end of the year, challenging market conditions, rising inflation and global geo-political uncertainties caused a tempering of appetites in private equity circles, with many firms happy to sit on their already-raised dry powder and wait for a hopefully more stable investing environment during the latter part of 2023," said partner Richard Daggett, co-head of Ogier's global Private Equity team.

"Our global Private Equity team has been helping clients navigate this evolving private equity space, allowing clients to innovate in response to the challenges. I'm delighted that our team's expertise in all aspects of the private equity life cycle and unwavering commitment to client service has, once again, been recognised by our industry peers."

Ogier has a unique jurisdictional footprint that includes six leading centres for private equity – BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Ireland, Jersey and Luxembourg. Its global Private Equity team includes more than 100 professionals from across the firm's core services.

The team's lawyers collaborate closely with Ogier's corporate, fiduciary and regulatory professionals to provide a full services offering to private equity sponsors, their advisers and intermediary law firms, advising on a wide spectrum of fund structures and their particular regulatory and commercial approaches, as well as complex downstream transactions and financings.

High profile deals from the last year include advising Gazit Globe on its €1.45 billion acquisition of Atrium European Real Estate Limited (AERE) – the first ever take-private by way of a Jersey statutory merger – and acting as BVI and Cayman counsel for the Atairos private equity group in a ground-breaking US$580 million take private of Ocean Outdoor Limited by way of a BVI statutory merger (one of the first ever UK take-privates by way of BVI statutory merger).
