Mourant maintains top tier rankings

[Dynamic date]

09 October 2020

Leading offshore law firm, Mourant, has maintained 16 top tier rankings across two of the world's most highly regarded legal directories.

Legal 500 and IFLR1000 launched their annual guides to the UK's leading lawyers this month. Both compile rankings and commentary based on feedback from peers and clients, backed up by independent research.

IFLR1000 2021 has confirmed the firm's top tier position in Guernsey and Jersey for Financial & Corporate and Investment Funds work for the tenth consecutive year.

The latest Legal 500 UK guide has also placed Mourant in Tier 1 for a total of 12 practice areas across the competitive Channel Islands market.

That success has been coupled with a notable rise up the rankings for its Jersey team delivering Regulatory and White Collar advice and services, which is now listed in Tier 2. This area of expertise was only introduced by Legal 500 last year, demonstrating that the team is quickly being recognised for its high quality by a number of existing and new clients.

Mourant has been widely praised for its "exceptional level of advice" in multiple areas across the UK rankings.

In a testimonial for the Legal 500 UK guide, one client said "The team at Mourant is incredibly professional, welcoming and down to earth. Judged by the quality of their work, we have moved to Mourant in other jurisdictions where we have again been greeted well and provided with an exceptional level of advice.

"The team are incredible, patient and a delight to deal with."

Mourant Global Managing Partner, Jonathan Rigby said the rankings reflect a depth of bench strength, expertise and outstanding client service across the teams and practices covered.

He said: "It's been an unprecedented year, and our teams have quickly adapted to continue to advise clients seamlessly in what has been an uncertain and unusual environment for many of us."

"We're pleased to have worked on some of the most interesting, complex and high-profile mandates in the last 12 months and to see many of these profiled by the independent directories."

"The endorsements by Legal 500 and IFLR1000 are fantastic. I'd like to thank our clients for their feedback and congratulate everyone at Mourant."

47 of Mourant's Channel Island lawyers have been individually ranked by the Legal 500 UK guide, while 32 lawyers from across Mourant's jurisdictions were individually recognised by IFLR1000.
