AO Hall, which will change its name to Walkers (Guernsey) LLP will provide specialist Guernsey law legal services in Guernsey and jurisdictions around the world under the Walkers brand.

Ingrid Pierce, Walkers’ global managing partner commented, “The decision to expand our reach into Guernsey was driven in the same way all of our international opening decisions are made, based on the needs of our clients. We have for some time had clients, particularly in Europe, asking us for Guernsey legal services and the opportunities presented in Guernsey make it the logical next step to providing seamless offshore legal services to clients across this region.”

Walkers (Guernsey) LLP will continue to be managed by Louise Hall the managing partner at AO Hall and the entire AO Hall team will remain in place, providing existing clients with a seamless transition.

Louise Hall commented: “Becoming part of Walkers offers us and our clients the opportunity to reach a global market and we are delighted that a firm of the calibre and international reputation that Walkers enjoys has chosen Guernsey for its continued global growth. This clearly demonstrates Walkers’ confidence in Guernsey as an important offshore business centre.”

Founded in 2005 with a team of just five, AO Hall has grown to over 25 staff and has developed a reputation in Guernsey for the particularly high calibre of its market leading lawyers, a sentiment which is echoed each year by both the leading legal directories and clients alike, with eleven of the firm’s fourteen lawyers being ranked by the leading legal directories.
