Two partners join Ogier's private client and trusts team
Two of the Channel Islands' top private client and trust lawyers have joined the Ogier partnership, bringing the number of partners at the firm to 52.
James Campbell, known as a “top-notch lawyer with an excellent grasp of cross-border issues” has joined in Jersey while Gavin Ferguson, described as “one of the island's top trust lawyers” has joined in Guernsey.
"Both come to us with outstanding reputations in their fields," says Ogier's global managing partner, Edward Mackereth. "Private client work is central to Ogier's practice and by recruiting some of the most respected names in the offshore private client world we are ensuring we maintain our leading reputation in that area."
Ferguson and Campbell join established partners Sally Edwards and Steve Meiklejohn in Jersey, Marcus Leese in Guernsey, and recent arrival Anthony Partridge in Cayman.
A Guernsey and BVI law specialist, Ferguson provides contentious and non-contentious fiduciary services to high net worth individuals, corporate clients and charities. He advises on all aspects of trust and foundation law and also advises on regulatory matters, general private client matters and has an interest in Sharia compliant structures.
Campbell has extensive experience advising professional trustees, family offices, intermediaries and high-net worth families on all aspects of Jersey trusts, foundations and estate planning, together with all related company and commercial law issues. He advises on the establishment, ongoing operation and restructuring of both private and commercial trusts and has a particular focus on the establishment and use of private trust companies.
