Ferbrache & Farrell partner Gavin Farrell has been named Lawyer of the Year for investment funds in Guernsey, in the 2021 edition of Best Lawyers.

Best Lawyers has been publishing highly regarded guides to the legal profession for more than 30 years and in more than 70 countries worldwide. Recognition is based entirely on peer review; lists of outstanding lawyers are compiled by conducting exhaustive surveys in which leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.

‘It’s an honour to be recognised in this way and an achievement not only for myself but more importantly for the team supporting me at Ferbrache & Farrell,’ said Advocate Farrell, one of nine local advocates highlighted by the publication.

‘It is not only a privilege to be named alongside my colleagues - primarily from one other firm in Guernsey - for investment funds, but also to be chosen amongst them as the Best Lawyer this year, since we at Ferbrache & Farrell are a recently established niche practice competing with long established international offshore firms.’

The Lawyer of the Year title is given as additional recognition for those with the highest overall peer feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region.

Advocate Farrell’s practice covers general corporate and banking work, funds and the asset management industry. He holds a number of directorships in investment and captive insurance companies, and has been ranked as a leading individual in banking, corporate and investment funds by a number of publications in recent years.
