IFLR gives Ogier Guernsey top-tier status
The International Financial Law Review (IFLR) 2014 edition published last week has promoted Ogier to a top-tier firm for its investment fund and corporate and finance practices in Guernsey. Ogier in Jersey also received a top-tier ranking for its corporate and finance work and a tier-two ranking for investment funds.
IFLR said that Ogier ‘had closed the gap on contemporary firms across the financial and corporate space and was comparable in size to the largest offering in the Channel Islands’.
The Guernsey office was commended for its work including the $1.2bn (£750m) HarbourVest acquisition, the $5.5bn Coller International Partners VI fund launch and the UK government’s £1bn mortgage indemnity scheme.
Ogier in Jersey was noted for its strength across the board. According to IFLR, the firm ‘does have some specialisations, which make it stand out from the pack’. These were reported as its Islamic and structured finance and mezzanine funds work.
