Ogier has been named Best Law Firm – Fund Domicile at the Private Equity Wire European Awards 2024, taking home the award for the third consecutive year.
The awards recognise excellence among private equity fund managers and service providers in Europe across a wide range of categories, voted by Private Equity Wire's industry-based audience.
“We’ve been hearing the phrase ‘cautious optimism’ used in the private equity market for some time," said partner Richard Daggett, co-head of Ogier's global Private Equity team. “In terms of deal activity, we saw a reasonable number of take-privates in 2023 but there was a shift in the last quarter when PE firms started diversifying their exit strategies to meet market conditions. We started seeing a broader set of deal types, including secondaries and carve-outs, so I think that cautious optimism is appropriate.
"In the face of uncertainty, having a seasoned team of legal experts is paramount. Ogier's global private equity specialists boast an intricate understanding of international and domestic private equity markets and regulation, and includes market-leading legal specialists in the technology and ESG spaces.
"Just as the private equity landscape diversifies, so do the challenges. Ogier’s client-centric approach helps clients to craft bespoke legal strategies to help them achieve their commercial objectives and 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.
Ogier's team's lawyers collaborate closely with Ogier's corporate, fiduciary and regulatory professionals to provide a full service 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 past year include advising Fortress Investment Group on its acquisition of Vice Media, one of the most iconic brands in news and entertainment, and advising major European private equity firm Apax Partners on the significant minority stake in technology company IBS Software from Blackstone.
