Ogier advises a number of individual private clients, investment banks and prominent local trust companies on large structures concerning both island residents and those elsewhere. James Campbell is the firm’s global head of private wealth, and Sally Edwards heads up the specific Jersey element of the team.

Josephine Howe, a January 2019 partner promotion, is also notable. Richard Laignel and Katie Baxter are key managing and senior associates respectively, and counsel Henry Wickham joined from Bedell Cristin in 2019. The team also includes Steve Meiklejohn, the firm’s global senior partner who is also appointed as a trustee, and Victoria Grogan, who covers matters for islanders as the office’s head of wills and probate.
