Mourant Ozannes continues to lead the field in the offshore market, according to the latest rankings published by Legal 500 UK yesterday.
The 2013 legal directory rankings, which include feedback from clients and peers, backed up by independent research, show that Mourant Ozannes has maintained its leading position by achieving 13 tier one rankings across the Channel Islands.
Tier one rankings are significant because they demonstrate superior technical expertise and service excellence. In Guernsey Mourant Ozannes has achieved tier one rankings in five categories and in Jersey the firm has tier one rankings in all eight categories.
Guernsey Managing Partner Jessica Roland said: “Our objective is to deliver world class service with legal teams that are at the forefront of our industry, and acknowledged thought leaders in their field. These results underline our commitment to quality above all else and are testament to the hard work and skills of our people.”
Jersey Managing Partner Daniel Birtwistle added: “The Legal 500 rankings are the most recognised accolades in our industry. To achieve this standing, for a second successive year, clearly reflects our determination to maintain our levels of excellence in service, knowledge and skills. The results are all the more satisfying because we have been judged by our clients and peers as being the very best in offshore law.”
Clients who took part in the Legal 500 research said that Mourant Ozannes “goes beyond the technical analysis, providing insight on its application in real life”, are “responsive to client needs, and ensures work is completed within agreed timescales”, and “service levels are of a consistently high standard”.
The Legal 500 Directory called Mourant Ozannes “diligent, knowledgeable and responsive”.
Jonathan Rigby, Global Managing Partner for Mourant Ozannes said: “2013 has been an incredible year for Mourant Ozannes. We are all very proud of what we are achieving and I would like to pay tribute to every member of our team, across our offices, for the contribution they have made to our continued success.”
Legal 500 has been publishing its series of directories for more than 20 years providing comprehensive worldwide coverage of legal services providers in over 100 countries.
Mourant Ozannes was recently named International Legal Team of the Year at the 2013/14 STEP Awards, and Offshore Law Firm of the Year at the Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence 2013.
