Carey Olsen Named Offshore Firm Of The Year

October 7, 2019

Carey Olsen has been named Offshore Firm of the Year at the Chambers High Net Worth Awards.

The awards, which were presented at a ceremony in London, celebrate legal excellence in the world of private wealth and are recognised as among the most highly regarded and prestigious awards of their kind globally.

Carey Olsen was shortlisted for the award by the legal directory’s highly respected research team following the publication of the 2019 edition of the Chambers and Partners High Net Worth [HNW] earlier this year.

The guide saw Carey Olsen secure a series of top tier rankings and Carey Olsen Bermuda Limited, which entered the rankings for the first time in Band 2, described as ‘a real emerging force’, with one onshore lawyer commenting that ‘they’re flying – they have a lot of work’.

The law firm said, “The guide also included a Band 1 ranking for Carey Olsen Bermuda partner Keith Robinson, who leads the firm’s trusts and private wealth practice. Described in Chambers HNW as ‘Mr Trust Litigation in Bermuda’ and ‘at the top of everyone’s list when you want an effective litigator in Bermuda’, Keith was one of only two lawyers in Bermuda to have been ranked in Band 1.

“Ashley Fife and Cheri Minors make up the rest of the trusts and private wealth team in Bermuda with Ashley also ranked in the guide as an ‘Up and Coming’ practitioner and described as ‘excellent’, ‘sharp and very responsive’ and someone with ‘very good international experience’.”

Commenting on the award win, Robinson said: “I am delighted that Carey Olsen has won this prestigious award. Chambers and Partners is a highly regarded publication and the judge’s recognition of the quality and depth of our trusts and private wealth team is much appreciated. Carey Olsen Bermuda itself is less than two years old and this award is also a recognition of the ongoing expansion of Carey Olsen in Bermuda and the Caribbean, but also in our key offices in Asia.”
