Cayman Islands-based Ogier Partner named in Global Private Client list

Cayman-based Ogier partner Rachael Reynolds has been named as one of the top international private client lawyers.

She is among six of Ogier’s Trust Advisory Group experts named in the Private Client Global Elite 2018, an independent directory listing 250 leading practitioners in the trusts and private client world.

Rachael leads Ogier’s Cayman Dispute Resolution team. She has particular expertise in contentious trust matters, fund disputes and restructuring and insolvency. Her practice regularly involves fraud and international asset tracing claims.

Market feedback for Rachael includes: “She is tough as well as being technically excellent. She knows how to judge her audience; she can turn on the charm when needed but pulls no punches when the situation requires it. In Cayman, attorneys have to fulfil a dual role: in addition to being the Court advocate they also have to be the point of contact with the client. Rachael is a delight to work with, not just because she is extremely clever and always completely on top of the facts and documents in the case, but because she understands the dynamic of the members of the team that she puts together and knows how to get the best out of all of them.”

Rachael is named in the Private Client Global Elite alongside Sally Edwards, who heads Ogier’s global Private Client and Trusts team, Ogier’s Global Managing Partner Edward Mackereth and senior partner Steve Meiklejohn, as well as Guernsey private client expert Gavin Ferguson and contentious trusts specialist Simon Davies.

All are members of Ogier’s world-leading Trusts Advisory Group, recently named International Team of the Year 2017/18 by STEP.

Sally Edwards said: “The strength of our team is in the quality and breadth of experience of our lawyers. We have in-depth knowledge of trusts and foundations, enabling us to provide flexible and practical guidance on choosing the most effective jurisdiction – so we are pleased that private client specialists spanning our Cayman, Guernsey and Jersey teams have been recognised in the Private Client Global Elite.”

Ogier’s Trusts Advisory Group draws together contentious and non-contentious trust practitioners. Dispute Resolution specialist Rachael has a particularly strong track record, having successfully acted in many of the headline international private client matters in recent years in Cayman.
