Collas Crill gains ground in Legal 500

September 2011

Collas Crill has made a strong showing in Legal 500 in its first listing since its merger.

The Channel lsland firm was formed in April this year by the merger of Collas Day in Guernsey and Crill Canavan in Jersey, previously listed separately in Legal 500.

In Guernsey, the firm has increased its ranking in dispute resolution and maintained its position in every other category while in Jersey, the firm has pushed ahead in three key areas: commercial property, corporate and commercial and investment funds.

In Guernsey Ian Kirk and Jason Green are named as leading individuals, with Kathryn Purkis and Richard Pirie named in Jersey.

Managing partner in Jersey Kathryn Purkis said: "We value Collas Crill's ranking in legal directories; we see strong mentions and high ratings as a trusted external endorsement of the quality of the firm and its legal professionals. The recognition that individual lawyers receive is partly down to clients and industry peers giving their recommendations, an endorsement we hold very dear."

Managing partner in Guernsey Jason Romer said: "We have largely increased or maintained our rankings, and sit alongside much larger local firms - a testament to the quality of work we do and service we provide. In particular our reputation in commercial property is growing, with department head in Guernsey Jason Green named as a leading individual and the team in Jerseyc ontinuing to gain ground with a promotion in the rankings this year."

The Legal 500 2011 was published on Wednesday 21 September 2011
