Mourant Ozannes leads Citywealth Leading Lawyers List in 2013


For the second year in a row, Mourant Ozannes has gained recognition as the leading offshore law firm for International Trusts & Private Client work by securing more Citywealth Leading Lawyer recommendations than any other.

The Citywealth Leaders List is a benchmark publication for the private wealth management sector. Mourant Ozannes has 14 leading lawyers named on the list; Douglas Close and St John Robilliard feature on the Honours List for both contentious and non-contentious trusts, while Jonathan Speck is ranked as one of the top five contentious trusts lawyers in the world (and the only one from an offshore firm).

Citywealth magazine features leading family offices, private client lawyers and fund managers. The editorial content aims to inform ultra-high net worth individuals and their advisors about the leading organisations and individuals within the global wealth industry. Available by subscription only, Citywealth is acknowledged as one of the world's most influential wealth management publications. Douglas Close, head of Mourant Ozannes' International Trusts & Private Client practice, commented: "I am delighted that the strength of our private client advisors and trust litigators has again been recognised by clients and peers. The endorsement of our integrated, global team by Citywealth for the second consecutive year is a significant achievement."

Now in its eighth year, the Citywealth Leaders List is compiled through recommendations of global peers, ultra-high net worth clients and charitable organisations. All those featured in the list are nominated confidentially by private clients or by peer recommendation. The nomination process is rigorous, with extensive interviews, references and testimonials.
