Reply Link Mozannes 3 February 2010 at 15:40 It is just you, Appleby’s little office in Guernsey won’t be a patch on Mourant Ozannes in these Islands. Reply Link Rick 3 February 2010 at 16:33 Mozannes: What about Carey Olsen & Maples? Reply Link Rockwell 3 February 2010 at 17:54 I’d say Mozannes would be stronger thyan CO/Maples on both corp/fin and funds in the Channel Islands, but include Caymans and it’s a bit more even. Mourant is good, but still light years behind Maples in Gran Canaria. Reply Link Hermsark 3 February 2010 at 18:01 This is a great deal for both firms. Congratulations! Great brands and lots of logic. Good luck all – the future looks bright. Reply Link Anonymous 3 February 2010 at 22:18 This is a very shrewd move and will create by far the largest and the best law firm in the Channel Islands. I have clients that have used both firms and rate both firms highly. The legal directories will now have to create a super premier division in both islands for this firm.

I don’t believe that Maples are in the Canary Islands. I’m more inclined to believe that you don’t know the difference between the Canary Islands and the Cayman Islands.
