Carey Olsen leads the offshore market in the Legal 500 UK rankings

Carey Olsen has been ranked as the leading law firm in the Channel Islands by Legal 500 UK with a top-tier position across all 17 of its practice areas, making it the only offshore law firm to have tier one status across the board.

The Legal 500 UK is a key industry report that grades law firms following a thorough and independent research process, which includes interviews with clients and peers as well as information provided by the firms themselves.

The new edition has ranked Carey Olsen in tier one for all eight practice areas in Guernsey, all eight in Jersey and for its offshore London practice, sealing its position as the leading offshore law firm in the Channel Islands.

26 of the firm’s lawyers feature in the elite list of ‘Leading Individuals’ and 64 are recommended in the editorial. The publication includes positive endorsements from Carey Olsen’s clients across all service areas. Praise for its lawyers includes that they are “super responsive and ready to collaborate” and having “a one-firm approach”. 

Group managing partner, Alex Ohlsson, said: “Carey Olsen has been positioned at the top of the Legal 500 UK tables for many years but to have achieved a clean sweep of tier one rankings is a fantastic endorsement. We thank our clients for providing outstanding feedback and our staff for their commitment and hard work. 

“The rankings reflect our ability to deliver an excellent client service and, following on from our recent win as ‘Offshore Firm of The Year’ at The Lawyer Awards, re-affirm our position as a leading player in the offshore legal market.”
