Ogier's team in Hong Kong has received outstanding client praise in Chambers Asia Pacific 2024, in which seven partners have been ranked.

According to the guide, Ogier distinguishes itself through its North Asia focus, innovative investment funds and private equity work, and well-regarded litigation team.

"They know what we want and when we want it. They are very good at deliverables and meeting deadlines," according to feedback.

Two partners from the Banking and Finance team are included in the rankings: Anthony Oakes is described as "an incredibly strong lawyer", "the real deal and a star performer", and David Nelson, who is singled out for his excellent client service and responsiveness, is described as "our go-to contact for offshore law firm expertise".

Ogier's global head of Corporate, Nathan Powell, receives a top-tier ranking, and the Hong Kong Investment Funds team is praised for its skilled advice on complex and cross-jurisdictional funds in private markets.

Investment funds partners Nicholas Plowman and Kate Hodson are both ranked in the guide. According to client feedback, Kate is "one of the best lawyers in her field. Highly responsive and knowledgeable as well as always keeping the client's expectations and budget in mind". Nick provides "comprehensive, accurate and to-the-point advice".

From the Dispute Resolution team, ranked partner Oliver Payne is praised for his "outstanding legal knowledge, client handling and experience", and partner Justin Davis is ranked as up and coming.

In addition, consultant Joanne Verbiesen was named as a notable practitioner. The guide says that she: "stands out for her expertise in offshore trusts" and is also "sought after for her knowledge in contentious matters such as shareholder disputes arising from transactions".

Hong Kong practice partner Nicholas Plowman said: "This is fantastic recognition for our talented team in Hong Kong - not just our ranked individuals, but all of our people across our practice areas, who are committed to putting clients first. It's great to see these rankings recognise their commitment and skill."
