The directory described Ogier's dispute resolution team as "an experienced bench of disputes lawyers noted for its particular expertise in insolvency matters". Partner Brian Lacy, who heads the team, is described as a "highly regarded figure" who has "hugely impressed" clients, while Partner Nicholas Burkill is described as "very capable" and praised for "working very well on a difficult case".

Managing Associate Grant Carroll, who joined Ogier last year, has been named in the associates to watch category and is described by peers as someone who has "done a good job of building his reputation."   

Ray Wearmouth said: "We're extremely pleased to see the band promotion of our BVI dispute resolution team which is a reflection of the calibre of both the talent we have here at Ogier and the instructions the team works on. Achieving the highest number of ranked BVI dispute resolution lawyers from managing associate to partner level further demonstrates the quality of the team across all levels."
