Carey Olsen partners recognised among best offshore litigators in Asia

Carey Olsen partners James Noble and Jeremy Lightfoot have been featured in the Asian Legal Business (ALB) Top 15 Offshore Litigators list for 2022 – the second consecutive time the pair have been named in the prestigious list.

ALB has selected the best disputes practitioners based on the prolific nature of their cases, exemplary client recommendations and market feedback. All lawyers featured are either based in Asia or a significant volume of their work is related to Asian jurisdictions.

James and Jeremy's inclusion in the list follows their respective recognitions in the recent ALB Offshore Client Choice List for 2022.

James leads the litigation, insolvency and restructuring practice in Asia and advises on Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands (BVI) and Bermuda law. He is the only litigator in Singapore who is admitted in the Cayman Islands and in the BVI, and is Bermuda registered. James has been based in Asia since 2012; first in Hong Kong SAR and then Singapore from 2018.

Jeremy is the head of the firm's dispute resolution and litigation practice in Hong Kong. His practice is focused on high value and complex commercial and corporate litigation, insolvency and restructuring matters under the laws of Bermuda, the BVI and the Cayman Islands. Jeremy relocated from the BVI to Hong Kong in 2017.

James and Jeremy said: "We are thrilled to receive this accolade from ALB for the second consecutive year off the back of client recommendations for our high-quality advice and support. Our Singapore and Hong Kong offering has grown from strength to strength, which is testament to the calibre, quality and expertise of the lawyers and teams we work alongside."

Carey Olsen has had a presence in Asia since launching in Singapore and Hong Kong in 2015 and 2016, respectively. The firm now employs 16 litigators across both offices, with the Singapore litigation team being the largest of any offshore law firm in the jurisdiction.
