Carey Olsen has retained its place as the top ranking offshore
law firm for London Stock Exchange (LSE) listed clients for the
last ten years, according to the latest Corporate Adviser Rankings
Guide, signalling a great start to 2016 for the global offshore law
The Corporate Adviser Rankings, which is celebrating its 10th
anniversary, is published each quarter and contains details of
institutional advisers and their clients.
With more than 90 LSE listed clients, Carey Olsen advises more
than twice that of the nearest offshore law firm. The firm
continues to lead the FTSE250, AIM and financial sector tables for
offshore law firms as well as ranking highly in the basic
materials, consumer services, industrials and oil and gas
The ranking follows figures released by the Association of
Investment Companies showing that Carey Olsen advised on more
listings of Guernsey and Jersey domiciled investment funds on the
LSE than any other offshore law firm in 2015.
The Guernsey corporate team's high-profile work included
advising on the launches of Alternative Liquidity Fund Limited and
Apax Global Alpha Limited on the LSE's Main Market together
with the launches of UK Mortgages Limited and GLI Alternative
Finance on the Specialist Fund Market (SFM). In Jersey, the firm
advised on the Main Market IPO of Project Finance Investments
Limited which raised £106 million.
Carey Olsen partner and head of the corporate group in Guernsey,
Graham Hall, said: "Carey Olsen has built a strong position as
the market leader for advising listed clients offshore and for this
recognition to continue is very rewarding.
"We have one of the largest offshore corporate and
commercial teams, giving us the depth and expertise to advise on
all types of FTSE-related matters for a range of clients."
The firm was also recognised as the leading legal adviser to
investment funds across the Channel Islands according to the
Monterey Insight Fund Survey for 2015, as well as receiving top
tier status for its corporate practice area in the IFLR1000
