Carey Olsen has been placed in the top ten law firms in the latest Hemscott rankings for law firms advising AIM stock market clients.

The firm, with offices in Guernsey, Jersey and London, is ranked ninth overall with 37 listed clients.

Carey Olsen is the highest ranked Channel Island firm to feature on the list in terms of both client numbers and the total market capitalisation of those clients, which stands at £1.1bn in April, up from £1.06bn in January.

"The top ten position places us alongside leading London firms," said Ben Morgan, Partner at Carey Olsen.

"Leading commercial and institutional clients have instructed us on high profile company transactions. Law firms in London are also regular referrers for AIM business. This shows that our peers and our clients know we have the expertise to handle complex corporate transactions and reinforces our position as the leading Channel Island law firm in this practice area."
