Best Lawyers recognition for six Carey Olsen partners

Six partners from Carey Olsen's Guernsey and Jersey offices have been recognised in the 2022 edition of The Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom.

Recognition by Best Lawyers, which publishes highly regarded guides to the legal profession in 76 countries, is based entirely on peer review. The methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the outstanding individuals from within the same geographic region and legal practice area by conducting exhaustive peer review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.

Among the six Carey Olsen lawyers recognised, Ben Morgan, head of the firm's corporate practice in Guernsey, was named 'Lawyer of the Year for Investment Funds in Guernsey' – an additional recognition for those with the highest overall peer feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region.

Ben, who was also recognised for corporate finance law, was one of four Guernsey partners named by Best Lawyers. Corporate partners Christopher Anderson and Andrew Boyce gained recognition for insurance law and investment funds respectively, while Russell Clark, head of the trusts and private wealth team in Guernsey, was named among the best for trusts and personal tax law.

In Jersey, group managing partner Alex Ohlsson is named among the best for three practice areas: corporate finance law, real estate finance and securitisation law. John Kelleher of the Jersey dispute resolution and litigation team is recognised for both his litigation and real estate law expertise.
