Mourant Ozannes leads Citywealth Leading Lawyers list in 2013
For the second year in a row, Mourant Ozannes has gained recognition as the leading offshore law firm for international trusts and private client work by securing more Citywealth Leading Lawyer recommendations than any other.
The Citywealth Leaders List is a benchmark publication for the private wealth management sector. Mourant Ozannes has 14 leading lawyers named on the list — Douglas Close and St John Robilliard feature on the Honours List for both contentious and non-contentious trusts, while Jonathan Speck is ranked as one of the top five contentious trusts lawyers in the world (and the only one from an offshore firm).
Citywealth magazine features leading family offices, private client lawyers and fund managers. The editorial content is intended to inform ultra-high-net-worth individuals and their advisers about the leading organisations and individuals within the global wealth industry.
