Offshore law firms Ogier and Mourant du Feu & Jeune are aiming to ramp up in London after securing larger offices for the new year.
Ogier's operations in London and Guernsey will move into new premises. The London team will increase its office space by more than three and a half times, from 1,692sq ft to 6,243sq ft. In Guernsey, Ogier is doubling the size of its office space from 7,455sq ft to 16,349sq ft.
Ogier chairman Jonathan White told The Lawyer: "Ogier has expanded considerably in the past year and we've taken on considerably more people, growing from 370 to around 480 across the various businesses."
Mourant will be moving to the same London street as Ogier, King William Street, later this year as it also oversees a change of managing partner for its City office. Daniel Birtwistle takes over from Jonathan Rigby in February.
