Citywealth Leaders List highlights Carey Olsen ‘Power Women’

Five lawyers at Carey Olsen have been recognised as ‘Power Women’ in the 2015 Citywealth Leaders List.

Partners Karen Le Cras and Siobhan Riley, counsel Elaine Gray and senior associates Natasha Kapp and Alison MacKrill are included in the list which recognises the key female influencers and opinion formers currently working in the international financial services industry.

The 10th Leaders List features prominent figures from across the legal and private wealth management sectors. It is compiled annually following extensive research and consultation with global peers and private clients and is broken down into nine categories.

Karen Le Cras and Alison MacKrill are also included in the 2015 Honours category alongside partners John Greenfield, Russell Clark, Konrad Friedlaender, Nic Journeaux, Davey Le Marquand and Paul Matthams. Elaine Gray and Natasha Kapp are also listed as Prominent Figures along with partner Andreas Kistler and consultant Mike Eades.

Karen Le Cras, head of the firm's Litigation and Dispute Resolution Group in Guernsey, said: “It is a testament to the firm that, with thirteen of our lawyers listed in a range of categories, we continue to have a strong presence in the Citywealth Leaders List.

"In addition, having five of our lawyers included as Power Women is an important accolade and one that sees Carey Olsen dominating the Channel Islands’ legal field in this category."
