Ogier partners Sally Edwards and Rachael Reynolds and counsel Katherine Neal have been included on the prestigious Citywealth IFC Powerwomen Top 200 List, recognising them as among the most powerful women in private wealth and private client advisory across the International Financial Centres. Their inclusion follows the recognition of 25 members of Ogier's team in the 2017 Citywealth Leaders List, the highest number from any offshore firm.
Inclusion on the Powerwomen Top 200 list is determined by research from previous lists, combined with recommendations from leading figures in the financial service industry, UHNW clients, charities and from a call for submissions.
Sally is global head of Ogier's private client and trusts team and advises a wide range of professional trustees, settlors and beneficiaries on all issues concerning trusts. She has been included in the top 200 list every year since its inception. The leading directories recognise Sally’s expertise, and clients have described her as “the Jersey trust guru when it gets tricky” and “an outstanding talent in her field”.
Rachael is head of Ogier's dispute resolution team in Cayman and has particular expertise in contentious trust matters, fund disputes and restructuring and insolvency, with clients describing her as "a real powerhouse… intellectually first class…with a highly developed commercial instinct" and "a delight to work with".
Katherine is counsel in Ogier's private client and trusts team, and her inclusion on the list follows her shortlisting for a Citywealth Powerwomen award in the "Woman of the Year – Business Growth" category. She is described by clients as "one of the need-to-know lawyers in Jersey".
Global Managing Partner Edward Mackereth said:
"I'm pleased to see the inclusion of Sally, Rachael and Katherine on the Powerwomen Top 200 List. They are excellent lawyers who are held in high esteem by industry peers and clients alike, and each plays a significant role in delivering Ogier's award-winning private client and trusts services."
