Mourant Ozannes achieves top rankings in latest IFLR1000 directory
Mourant Ozannes has announced that it has maintained its position with top-tier rankings in both categories of financial and corporate and investment funds in Guernsey and Jersey in the latest publication of the International Financial Law Review 1000 (IFLR1000) rankings.
It is the only law firm in Jersey and Guernsey to have been awarded a top-tier ranking in all categories in the directory, in both islands, for the last three years.
The law firm’s British Virgin Islands (BVI) office has entered the Latin American rankings within the first year of the office opening and its Cayman Islands practices maintained their rankings in the guide and were singled out for expanding the corporate team with top hires.
Mourant Ozannes’ Hong Kong office, opened in 2012, has secured a Tier 2 ranking for financial and corporate alongside firms that have been present in Asia for more than 20 years.
The IFLR1000 rankings are compiled by specialist legal journalists based in the key centres of London, New York and Hong Kong.
