Carey Olsen is a finalist for Offshore Firm of the Year at the Legal 500 UK Awards 2020 – a category the firm won at the 2019 awards held earlier this year.
The 2020 awards, which take place on Thursday 27 February in London, follow on from the publication in September of the legal directory's 2020 rankings which, once again, saw Carey Olsen ranked as the leading law firm in the Channel Islands with 18 top-tier rankings.
A key industry research guide, Legal 500 grades the world's leading law firms based on a series of criteria that includes a thorough and independent research process, interviews with clients and peers as well as information provided by the firms themselves.
The 2020 edition saw Carey Olsen secure a clean sweep of Tier One rankings across nine practice areas in Guernsey, along with nine Tier One rankings in Jersey. 12 Carey Olsen partners also featured in the Legal 500 Hall of Fame, which is reserved for law firm partners who 'are at the pinnacle of the profession' and have received 'constant praise by their clients for continued excellence'.
The publication cited a significant amount of feedback from industry peers and clients, with endorsements describing Carey Olsen as 'the best offshore firm experience' and how the firm 'often goes that extra mile to assist in sometimes very complex situations'.
