Who's Who Legal has praised 14 Mourant lawyers as some of the leading private client practitioners in the world.

The Who's Who guide is based on recommendations from peers and clients in their respective fields. The process includes comprehensive independent survey work, with both general counsel and private practice lawyers worldwide. Only specialists who have met the independent international research criteria are listed.

The Who's Who list highlighted the following individuals for their expertise in the area of private client law:

Bruce Lincoln

Christopher Edwards

Edward Devenport

Eleanor Morgan

Giles Corbin

Gordon Dawes

Jeremy Wessels

Jim Edmondson

Jonathan Speck

Matthew Guthrie

Paul Christopher

Robert Shepherd

Stephen Alexander

 Tony Pursall

These rankings are hot on the heels of the team's recognition in Legal Week's Private Client Global Elite list of 250 leading lawyers. Mourant had more lawyers listed than any other offshore law firm for the second consecutive year, and independent endorsements from both Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

The firm's International Trusts & Private Client practice brings together contentious and non-contentious work in a genuine "one-firm" approach, enabling it to advise seamlessly on the appropriate jurisdiction in which to establish and administer private wealth structures and to work together without jurisdictional boundaries. The firm also advises on trust and foundation law, including trusts holding private wealth, and in the commercial sphere (eg, pensions and EBTs) and disputes.
