In the first transatlantic merger of offshore law firms, Channel Islands firm Ogier and Cayman Islands firm Boxalls are to link up as of 1 February 2004.
The merger will create a 24-partner firm with a total of approximately 110 lawyers, and offices in Jersey, Guernsey, the Cayman Islands and London.
Ogier chairman Jonathan White said: “There is strong and growing demand for the provision of offshore services by top tier organisations in well-regulated jurisdictions.”
The Cayman Islands office will be known as Ogier & Boxalls, whereas the other offices will continue to practice under the name Ogier & La Masurier. Boxalls’ fiduciary business will be known as Ogier Fidcuiary Services.
