Jersey: Four Senior Lawyers Appointed To New Counsel Role At Ogier
Last Updated: 21 February 2017

Four senior lawyers have been appointed to the new role of Counsel at Ogier, reflecting their technical expertise and leadership of a distinct area of legal practice.

Ogier has introduced the "Counsel" title to recognise technical expertise and leadership skills – the first lawyers to be promoted to the role in Jersey are Michael Little who leads the Channel Islands employment law team, private client expert Katherine Neal and Nicola Roberts, a Jersey and BVI qualified commercial and trust litigation specialist.

The firm has also recruited insolvency specialist Alex Horsbrugh-Porter to a Counsel position in the Guernsey dispute resolution team – Alex is a Cayman and Guernsey qualified lawyer, and a UK licensed insolvency practitioner.

Ogier's Global Senior Partner Steve Meiklejohn said: "We are delighted to make these announcements – each of the lawyers promoted to Counsel roles have excelled in their area of practice and displayed technical excellence.

"This new role is a statement of our confidence in them, their skills and their leadership in guiding and leading teams in their particular fields."

Earlier this month, Ogier announced the recruitment of investment funds specialist Emily Haithwaite to the Jersey team, and the promotion of private equity lawyer Laurent Thailly to the firm's partnership in the Luxembourg office.
