Ogier's Cayman team noted for its depth of expertise in latest Legal 500 Caribbean rankings

Cayman Islands

Ogier's Cayman Islands multi-discipline practice "allows a client to get one-shop treatment in multiple jurisdictions if required", according to the latest Legal 500 Caribbean rankings.

Feedback from the 2024 guide says the teams "work well together and the flow from partner to partner is seamless", with the firm ranked in eight practice areas and more than 25 lawyers individually recognised.

Ogier's Cayman Dispute Resolution team was called "a high-class team from top to bottom that is hugely experienced and on the cutting edge of commercial disputes, civil fraud and trusts", as well as having a "seemingly encyclopaedic knowledge of local law and practice and great knowledge of and feel for the individual judges".

Marc Kish was described by client feedback as a "precise and devastating litigator", while fellow leading individual Rachael Reynolds KC's reputation "extends far beyond the shores of the Islands" with client comments also suggesting that "in a major multi-party matter there will be a rush to her door before one of the other parties instructs her". "Absolutely brilliant lawyer and great tactician" Christopher Levers and Jennifer Fox were listed as next generation partners, while Gemma Lardner and Deborah Barker Roye were given key lawyer status.

An "intelligent, business-driven" Investment Funds team saw five lawyers named as leading individuals - James Bergstrom, Nick Rogers, Giorgio Subiotto, Joanne Huckle and Justin Savage, who was described as "always providing reliability and accessibility". Emma Sutherland and Tim Cone were named as next generation partners and Barry McEwan and Gemma Cowan are named as key lawyers.

Joanne Huckle was also named a leading individual for Regulatory and Compliance, joined in the rankings by key lawyers Martin Byers, described as "without question one of the best on the island", Sophie Warburton, "star of the future" Megan Mcluskie and "dedicated, experienced and professional" Cornelia Zhu.

Ogier's "proactive and solution-focused" Cayman Trusts and Private Client practice was said to "benefit from the integrated international approach of Ogier's global organisation of its practice" in what was a "very joined up approach". "Impressive duo" Rachael Reynolds KC, "Cayman's star trust lawyer and litigator", and Anthony Partridge, "a delight to work with", were named as leading individuals. Rising star Deborah Barker Roye "impresses in the private client sphere", as does key lawyer Jennifer Fox. "Client focused and responsive" Christopher Levers was also named as a key lawyer, as was Gregory Haddow, who was described alongside Anthony Partridge as a "leading light of the of the non-contentious private client team".

In its Cayman Banking, Finance and Capital Markets practice, Ogier's team was described as "always willing and able to meet tight deadlines". James Heinicke and Angus Davison were listed as leading individuals, while Mark Santangeli was named as a next generation partner and Bradley Kruger and Cynthia Anandajayasekeram were named as key lawyers.

The "highly responsive and accessible to clients" Corporate and Commercial practice saw Bradley Kruger named as a leading individual. Cynthia Anandajayasekeram, Angus Davison, James Heinicke and Giorgio Subiotto were named as key lawyers, with Cynthia also named a next generation partner.

Sophie Warburton was also named as a key lawyer along with Cline Gidden in the Real Estate team, with Cline also recognised as a rising star. Intellectual Property expert Sophie Peat was praised in her practice area in a cross-Caribbean capacity, named as a next generation partner who is "proactive, positive and pragmatic" and "extremely knowledgeable about the various Caribbean countries".

Ogier was also ranked as a top tier leading firm in the Caribbean for foreign-based expertise.

Ogier's Cayman Islands practice partner James Bergstrom said: "The fact we have so many lawyers ranked across several practice areas shows the depth of expertise we have at Ogier, as well as their ability to act in cross-border matters, which contributes to Ogier being a true global firm. Well done to the whole team."
