Ogier took home a record four gold awards in the Citywealth IFC Awards, scooping the top spot for its Cayman, Guernsey, Hong Kong and Jersey teams.

This is the fifth consecutive year that Ogier has been recognised at the awards, which were established to highlight excellence in private wealth, and are judged by an international panel who focus on technical expertise, innovative solutions, client service initiatives, leadership and vision.

Partner Josephine Howe and global head of restructuring and corporate recovery Mathew Newman represented the firm at the awards, which were held virtually this year. Mathew also took home gold in the Lawyer of the Year – Litigation category and global head of private wealth James Campbell took home silver in the Lawyer of the Year – Channel Islands and Isle of Man category.

Global managing partner Edward Mackereth said: "This is an exceptional performance by our trusts advisory group and it's especially meaningful to get external recognition of our first-rate client service after a year like no other, where we have all worked together across the firm and across teams to adapt to a significantly changed business environment. I'm also pleased to see the recognition for two of our service line heads - Mathew and James are an integral part of Ogier's success and these awards are thoroughly well-deserved."
