Ogier has been described as "the go-to firm" in the BVI in the latest Legal 500 Caribbean Guide, which has praised the firm for its "high level of rigour and expertise".

According to client feedback, the top tier BVI Dispute Resolution team's "blend of experience in complex international disputes" and "ability to grasp novel technical issues really sets Ogier apart from the rest." and it is described as being "the regular recipient of superlative praise".

From the team, partner Brian Lacy is recognised as a "bright star in the Caribbean legal firmament" and he is ranked as a leading individual, alongside partner and "first-rate litigator" Nicholas Burkill. Partner Nicholas Brookes, described as "one of the best commercial litigators around," is named a next generation partner, as is partner Grant Carroll, whom clients describe as "a highly trusted adviser." The guide also notes partner David Welford, managing associate Ewelina Clyde-Smith, counsel Alexander Muksinov, and managing associate Daniel Mitchell as key lawyers in the team.

Ogier's top tier regulatory and compliance experts have been praised for their ability to "bring a high level of rigour and expertise to emerging legal queries." The multi-disciplinary team's "substantial level of fintech regulatory expertise" is also highlighted. Team lead partner Michael Killourhy is named a leading individual and managing associate David Mathews is identified as a rising star and a key contact for the firm’s digital and fintech client base.

In the banking, finance and capital markets category, Ogier is described as "one of the top firms in the BVI." Michael Killourhy and partner Ray Wearmouth are ranked as leading individuals and senior associate Tiffany Tolliss, who delivers "exceptional service," is noted as a key lawyer.

Partner Simon Schilder is ranked a leading individual in the Investment Funds team, and the "extremely responsive" Michael Killourhy is noted for his expertise in fintech and digital asset-focused funds.

BVI practice partner Ray Wearmouth said: "Ogier in the BVI is enjoying an exciting period of growth and it's fantastic to see the commitment and talent of our teams, across service lines, recognised by the latest Legal 500 results. We strive to provide a personal, high-quality service and I think that's reflected in the excellent client feedback."
