Ferbrache & Farrell partner Gavin Farrell is one of eight Guernsey Advocates recognised by Best Lawyers - a leading guide to lawyers based on peer review.

Advocate Farrell is the only lawyer in the corporate category from a single-office and independent Guernsey law firm, with the other six recognised corporate lawyers working for the same large multi-jurisdiction offshore firm.

‘I’m very pleased to once again appear on the list of Guernsey Advocates recognised by Best Lawyers. It’s particularly rewarding to know that I am the only lawyer on the list from an independent firm. It is simply an achievement of the whole of Ferbrache & Farrell,’ said Advocate Farrell.

‘Whilst we are now approaching five years old, Ferbrache & Farrell is still a relatively new niche practice, competing with long-established international offshore firms.’

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.

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.
