Ogier's global head of Private Wealth, Matt Guthrie, has been named Channel Islands Lawyer of the Year by Citywealth.

Also named the "leading technical lawyer on the island" by Chambers UK and "able to cut through to the heart of what is really important" by Legal 500, Matt specialises in advising high-net-worth families, trust companies and family offices in relation to succession planning and structuring through trusts, foundations and other vehicles.

He said: "I feel honoured to have been recognised as the leading Private Wealth lawyer in the Channel Islands. I'm backed by an incredibly strong global team at Ogier, whose talent, dedication, and client-centricity enable us to deliver exceptional client service and are also reflected in this award. It is as much our Private Wealth team's award as it is mine and I am very privileged to work with all of them."

Matt's practice includes designing and implementing bespoke cross border structures and advising trustees in relation to complex matters and disputes. He also advises clients in relation to their international reporting requirements, economic substance and automatic exchange of information between jurisdictions.

Guernsey-based, his practice is truly international and he works with families and fiduciary businesses in Europe, the Middle East, the US and the UK.

Matt is a member of the International Academy of Trust and Estate Practitioners and a member of STEP. Matt is the co-author of "Guernsey Trust Law" the only book dealing exclusively with trust and foundations under Guernsey law, which was published by Hart in 2020.
