Carey Olsen named Guernsey law firm of the year by Citywealth

Wealth management magazine Citywealth named Carey Olsen the Guernsey law firm of the year at its 2018 International Finance Centre Awards in London last night.

Now in their seventh year, the awards were established to highlight the excellence of the advisers and managers in the private wealth sector in the major international financial centres and are judged by a panel of highly respected practitioners from all private wealth sectors covering the jurisdictions.

The awards, which took place at the Rosewood London Hotel on Thursday 25 January, saw Carey Olsen selected as best Guernsey law firm from a shortlist of other island firms.

In the past year Carey Olsen has also been recognised at the  The Lawyer Awards (Offshore Firm of the Year) and Who's Who Legal Awards (Guernsey Law Firm of the Year).

In addition, the IFC Powerwomen Top 200 list, which is compiled by Citywealth and recognises leaders in government, private wealth, education, private client advisory and philanthropy featured seven Carey Olsen lawyers. Guernsey partners Karen Le Cras, Elaine Gray, Natasha Kapp and counsel Patricia Montgomery were joined by Jersey partner Siobhan Riley and counsel Victoria Connolly and BVI senior associate Sharon Mungall.
