Mourant set to launch Guernsey office

Offshore law firm Mou-rant du Feu & Jeune is launching a Guernsey office in January as it expands its multi- jurisdictional capabilities.

The Guernsey operation will bring Mourant’s office tally to four, including the Cayman Islands, Jersey and London.

Mourant is part of the offshore magic circle – the set of firms that have legal expertise in more than one of the offshore juris-dictions.

Other firms in this group include Appleby Spurling Hunter, Maples and Calder, Ogier and Walkers.

In other offshore news, rival Ogier has announced it is to operate under one name for all jurisdictions and business lines.

At the moment the Ogier network comprises Ogier & Le Masurier, Ogier & Boxalls and Ogier Fiduciary Services. From 1 November all these sections will operate as Ogier.
