Two Carey Olsen lawyers in 'elite directory'

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Two lawyers in the Bermuda office of international law firm Carey Olsen have been recognised in the 2020/21 edition of Legal Week's Private Client Global Elite Directory.

Bermuda partner Keith Robinson, who leads the firm's trusts and private wealth practice, has achieved “Global Elite” status, while counsel Ashley Fife, who is the current chairman of the Bermuda branch of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, has been recognised as “One to Watch”.

Launched in 2017, the firm said the directory is billed as “the list of the world's most respected lawyers advising ultra-high-net-worth clients” and serves as a handbook of leading private client lawyers and trust and estate litigators.

Carey Olsen said the 2020/21 edition received more than 6,000 entries, resulting in recommendations for 300 “Global Elite” lawyers and 150 “Ones to Watch”.

The firm said those included in the directory are determined by the number of nominations an individual receives from industry peers, the depth and breadth of their experience, high levels of client service and their international network, including the range of jurisdictions qualified in and their participation in cross-border work.

Carey Olsen said this latest recognition for Mr Robinson and Mr Fife follows the stellar reviews both they and Carey Olsen Bermuda's trusts and private wealth practice received in the 2020 edition of Chambers High Net Worth.

The firm said the latest edition of the directory saw Mr Robinson lead the individual rankings for Bermuda as the only lawyer to be ranked as a Band 1 practitioner for “offshore trusts” and Mr Fife move up the rankings to Band 2.

Those rankings helped contribute to Carey Olsen's global trusts and wealth practice being named Offshore Firm of the Year for the second successive year at the Chambers High Net Worth Awards.

In total, Carey Olsen said 12 of its lawyers were recognised in this year's edition of the Private Client Global Elite Directory, with Mr Robinson and Mr Fife joined by colleagues from the firm's British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey offices.
