The offshore legal and fiduciary services provider hosted leaders of Cayman’s financial services industry on Wednesday 18 November at the firm’s new home at Camana Bay, a move which brings the firm’s diverse arms under one roof.

Along with live music and refreshments, the evening was marked by an address by Premier McKeeva Bush, who praised the firm’s accomplishments.

Along with recognizing the firm’s role in Cayman’s financial services sector, he expressed his gratitude for the contributions of its members to the formulation of new revenue stream strategies for the Cayman Islands.

Despite challenging economic times, Ogier has experienced significant growth in a number of teams, especially its Litigation and restructuring & insolvency team under the leadership of Chris Russell and Ogier Fiduciary Services (Cayman) Limited under Balan Murugesu.

‘The face of Ogier has changed over the years,’ said law firm managing partner James Bergstrom.

‘We are a firm offering integrated legal and fiduciary services and have significant and increasing strength across our core practice areas of banking and finance, investment funds, litigation, and private client and trusts.’

The Ogier group employs almost 850 professional and support staff with a presence in eleven jurisdictions around the world: Bahrain, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Ireland, Jersey, London and Tokyo.

Ogier provides advice on all aspects of BVI, Cayman, Guernsey and Jersey law and associated fiduciary services through a global network of offices that cover all time zones and key financial markets.
