Zoë Beer and Jonathan Law are the latest graduates from Ogier's English Solicitor Training Programme, and have joined the firm as associates. Zoë, who studied in Jersey, has now joined the Guernsey Dispute Resolution team and Jonathan, who studied in Guernsey, has relocated to Hong Kong to join Ogier's Banking and Finance team.
Partner Richard Daggett, who leads the training scheme, said: "Although we are based in multiple jurisdictions, we think of ourselves as one firm and both Zoë and Jonathan's relocations are a great example of this mentality. Their paths also demonstrate that choosing to train in one location does not limit the possibilities of where your career might take you.
"A sizeable number of senior members of the firm have graduated from the course, and we all take significant pride in delivering this dedicated development programme that is equivalent to those run by City firms. Qualifying as a Solicitor is a landmark in anyone's legal career. We are delighted to celebrate Zoë and Jonathan's success and welcome them to their new roles as associates."
Zoë's previous supervisor, Richard Laignel, said: "Zoë has demonstrated that she has all the key skills needed to have a fine career in law and will no doubt be a great asset to the firm, and the Guernsey Dispute Resolution team in particular."
Jonathan's previous supervisor, James Walsh, said: "Throughout his traineeship, Jonathan has demonstrated focus and commitment, always providing excellent client service with enthusiasm."
Ogier is one of only two offshore firms to provide a City equivalent solicitor training programme. Regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, the two-year scheme sees trainees take on up to four seats, including time in Litigation, and incorporates the Professional Skills Course and an experiential litigation course, with a mock trial at the Magistrate's Court.
