Carey Olsen is third largest offshore law firm

Carey Olsen has been ranked as the third largest offshore law firm in The Lawyer magazine’s 2016 Offshore Survey.

We have risen in the table following a 10 per cent increase in the number of qualified lawyers over the past year, making a total complement of 188. The survey also positions us at the top of the rankings in both Guernsey and Jersey making our presence in the Channel Islands the largest of any law firm.

2015 was a significant year for the firm; we launched our BVI dispute resolution and litigation practice under the leadership of highly-regarded BVI practitioner Ben Mays,opened our Singapore office led by top corporate and ex-Allen & Overy partner Linda Lee and greatly expanded our BVI and Cayman offices.

Chairman John Kelleher said: “2015 was another year of strong growth for us with some major milestones being reached. The Lawyer ranking re-affirms our position as a leading player in the offshore legal market while reinforcing our pole position in the Channel Islands.”
