Offshore law firm Ogier revamps senior management

Offshore law firm Ogier has announced changes to its senior management team.

Dispute resolution specialist Edward Mackereth has taken over as the law firm’s global managing partner, while private client expert Steve Meiklejohn has become global senior partner.

Mackereth replaces Nick Kershaw, who moves from his managing partner role after eight years to become chair of Ogier’s executive board. Kershaw said that he welcomed a “new generation taking the helm” at Ogier.

Mackereth originally joined Ogier as a dispute resolution partner in 2004. Having led Ogier’s Jersey dispute resolution team and then the firm’s global team – across five international offices – he joined Ogier’s executive board in 2015.

Kershaw said: “Edward has been instrumental in developing Ogier’s approach to client service and instrumental in establishing our multi-jurisdictional regulatory and restructuring and insolvency teams.”

Meiklejohn, a private client specialist and long-standing partner of the firm for more than 30 years, becomes global senior partner following the retirement of Sarah Fitz.

Ogier provides advice on the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg law through its network of offices that also includes Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo.
