Mourant secures 25 top rankings across major legal directories
18 October 2019
Mourant has maintained all of its 25 top tier rankings across key practice areas in all three of the UK's leading legal directories. The firm was praised by clients as being 'extremely professional while also being very approachable' and 'very collaborative and knowledgeable'.
The rankings are published in three of the world's most highly regarded legal directories, Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500 and IFLR1000, and are compiled using feedback from peers and clients, backed up by independent research.
Among the Chambers & Partners rankings, Mourant was the only firm recognised in Band 1 in Guernsey for Offshore Dispute Resolution and Employment. The firm's Jersey office was ranked Tier 1 in seven separate practice areas in The Legal 500, including for Investment Funds.
In addition to the practice area rankings, 60 individual Mourant lawyers from Guernsey, Jersey and London received praise from clients and peers, and were classed as leaders in their field of practice. Several lawyers were added this year in the 'up and coming' category and the guides recognised the firm's outstanding client service at every level.
Mourant Global Managing Partner, Jonathan Rigby, said: "This is a fantastic result for our teams. Thank you to all our clients who took time to provide such positive feedback on us and, of course, to our talented lawyers for continuing to work together to deliver exceptional and seamless service. The annual directory rankings also reflect the significant, often complex, work we're involved in as a firm. It's always a proud moment to be able to see it validated in this way."
Mourant employs over 500 people across its offices in the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Jersey and London. The firm advises all of the world's top 30 largest law firms, 90% of the world's top 50 banks and 72% of the top 25 global private equity houses.
