1 min read

Ogier in the British Virgin Islands has once again achieved top-tier rankings for Corporate and Finance including Investment Funds, and Dispute Resolution in the latest Chambers Global Guide.

Described as "reliable and responsive" and "top-drawer", the rankings for Ogier in the BVI also include four ranked individuals across its teams.

The 2024 guide, which is based on client feedback, calls Ogier's BVI Dispute Resolution team "nimble and agile" and the "first port of call". Further feedback highlights the team's cross-jurisdictional network, describing the team as "highly responsive and capable of deploying resources from offices around the world to keep matters moving around the clock" and "always on the forefront of new legal strategies and industries".

Three lawyers on the team are ranked including "one of the best advocates for the BVI", partner Brian Lacy, who heads Ogier's disputes in the BVI. He is further described as "at the top of most people's list for high-value, complex BVI cases" and "well prepared and balances numerous commitments with ease". His versatility is highlighted by one client who says he "can do direct client-facing work, but he can also go to the court and represent the client well".

Partner Nicholas Burkill is noted for his wealth of onshore and offshore experience and is described by client feedback as "very astute at spotting factual points that will resonate with the court", while partner Nicholas Brookes is called a "safe pair of hands".

The guide regards Ogier's Corporate and Finance, and Funds, teams as "market leaders" praising them for their "strong guidance and assistance in some incredibly challenging situations".

Partner Michael Killourhy, who heads up Ogier's BVI transactional practices and who also holds a high individual ranking, is described as "top class", with further client feedback saying he has provided "great assistance."

BVI practice partner Nicholas Brookes said :"We are delighted to see our top tier rankings with Chambers extended for another year. The consistent complimentary feedback demonstrates our team's expertise and commitment to putting clients first. They deserve this after another year of excellent work."
