Best Lawyers recognition for seven Carey Olsen partners

Seven partners from Carey Olsen's Guernsey and Jersey offices have been recognised in the 2021 edition of The Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom.

Recognition by Best Lawyers, which has been publishing highly regarded guides to the legal profession for over 30 years and in more than 70 countries worldwide, is based entirely on peer review. The methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographic region and legal practice area.

Among the seven Carey Olsen lawyers recognised, Jersey partner John Kelleher was named 'Lawyer of the Year for Litigation in Jersey' – an additional recognition for those with the highest overall peer feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region.

John, who was also recognised by Best Lawyers for real estate law, was one of two Jersey partners named, with corporate partner Alex Ohlsson among the best for three practice areas: corporate finance law, real estate finance and securitisation law.

From Carey Olsen's Guernsey corporate team, Ben Morgan was featured for both corporate finance law and investment funds, while Andrew Boyce and Christopher Anderson gained recognition for investment funds and insurance law respectively.

Russell Clark of the Guernsey trusts and private wealth team and John Greenfield of the Guernsey dispute resolution and litigation team were both named among the best for trusts and personal tax law.
