Offshore top 30 position: 28
While not seeing any particular change in headcount in 2012, BVI firm O’Neal Webster said it had experienced continued growth in litigation, trust and regulatory work, contributing to a “significant” revenue growth of eight per cent over two years. The firm also reported new client wins in the trusts and fund areas.
The firm’s client list includes UBS, for which it is acting in relation to the mammoth Fairfield Sentry litigation. UBS is trying to recover money lost in the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme.
Meanwhile, O’Neal Webster also led offshore advice to residential developer Taylor Wimpey as it restructured following the sale of several subsidiaries for $1.15bn.
