Chambers is one of the world's leading reference directories. The UK guide annually ranks onshore and offshore law firms and focuses on seven practice areas in the Channel Islands using a three-pronged process which combines law firm submissions, practice interviews and client feedback.

Carey Olsen was ranked in band one for two practice areas in Guernsey and two in Jersey and achieved the highest number of band one rankings of any law firm in Guernsey. This year Jersey's corporate and finance team moved into band one and Jersey's investment funds team moved into band two.

The firm maintained its band one position for corporate and finance legal services in Guernsey, dispute resolution in Jersey and trusts in Guernsey and its band two rankings for trusts in Jersey and dispute resolution services in Guernsey. The law firm's Guernsey office achieved more band one rankings of any law firm based on the island.

Research carried out by Chambers UK produced a significant number of client endorsements as well as on specific individuals. In particular, the offshore law firm received a range of feedback from clients commending its approach to client service. The law firm's international network also received strong client recognition with one client stating: "They have a very international perspective in their business and are well connected in the major economies and finance centres."

A total of 23 Carey Olsen partners featured in the individual rankings table across the seven practice areas, six in band one.

Carey Olsen Chairman John Kelleher (pictured) said: "We'd like to thank our clients for taking the time to provide their feedback about the standards of service they receive from Carey Olsen. We are very pleased to have grown our position within the tables and most grateful to have received such a ringing endorsement from the people who we work with about our general approach to servicing clients including the active role that our partners take in client work, our teamwork, and our international knowledge.”
