Top-tier ranking for Ogier's Guernsey Private Wealth team in Chambers HNW Guide


30 July 2021


Ogier's Private Wealth team in Guernsey has been ranked as top tier in the new Chambers HNW Guide. The new ranking follows a year of significant growth for the team, including the arrival of partners Matt Guthrie and Catherine Moore.

The guide also saw Chris Hards newly ranked as an associate to watch.

Described as "excellent value" and "interested in long-term relationships" by clients, the team's "long history and really solid reputation" have led them to achieve this market-leading status.

Client feedback describes partner and team lead Matt Guthrie as "the brightest and most commercially astute lawyer on the island," and partner Catherine Moore has been identified in the up and coming category. Partner Gavin Ferguson has retained his band 1 ranking, described as a "top expert in his field", while associate to watch Chris Hards has been described by a market insider as "exceptional; very prompt and very precise."

Head of Ogier's Private Wealth team in Guernsey Matt Guthrie said: "This top-tier ranking for Ogier's Private Wealth offering in Guernsey is testament to the strength and depth of the team at Ogier and the firm's commitment to invest in this area. Our team is truly market leading, regularly working on the most significant trust matters in Guernsey. I'm particularly pleased to see Chris' new and much-deserved individual ranking and the team's continued growth."

Global head of Private Wealth James Campbell said: "We're delighted to see the team's strength in depth reflected in the new Chambers HNW Guide. In a world of complexity and change, we know that clients need both commercial, to-the-point advice and a trusted relationship with their legal advisers, and I'm delighted that our investment in this area is reflected in the experience clients have of our services."

Ogier's global Trusts Advisory Group is the only offshore private client team to have achieved a top tier ranking across its Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey teams.
