Ferbrache & Farrell continues to increase its recognition as a Guernsey law firm in the legal directories.

All departments or leading Advocates of Ferbrache & Farrell have been recognised in the 2022 edition of Chambers UK. The highly respected legal directory ranks law firms and their lawyers based purely on client feedback.

Ferbrache & Farrell’s dispute resolution department is highlighted in the guide for its expertise in a range of dispute areas, in particular commercial and trusts litigation. Clients described the department as ‘personable’ and having good communication.  One source noted: ‘They have quality people on the team who are thorough, professional and approachable.’

Ranked individuals in the firm include Advocate Gavin Farrell, who remains one of the only two Guernsey lawyers who achieved the top tier ranking for corporate & finance including investment funds. Advocate Farrell is also the only ranked lawyer in the corporate rankings who is from a Guernsey-only practice and not from the Guernsey office of a global offshore law firm. The guide describes Advocate Farrell as being highly regarded for his extensive funds knowledge. He advises clients on a wide variety of matters including fund formation, investments and operational issues.’

‘It is particularly pleasing to be the only Guernsey corporate lawyer and department to achieve this from a single-office, independent firm. Our ranking is however a reflection of the entire firm’s collective work and effort. It is not down to individuals,’ said Advocate Farrell.

Advocate Hargreaves, who is also the firm’s managing partner, leads the property and private client department. He is ranked band 2 for property and is described as being well respected for his broad practice advising on both residential and commercial property matters. His areas of work also include development issues and acquisitions. One client noted: ‘He has an ability to make all clients feel at ease, and his advice is concise, accurate and commercial.’

Advocate Hargreaves added: ‘I’m delighted with our continuing success and market recognition – a testament to our team and our commitment to our clients.’

Ferbrache & Farrell was established in 2016 and consists of highly respected individuals with decades of experience and who are all recognised locally and internationally for their levels of expertise in commercial law, property law, private client and dispute resolution.

Last month the firm was recommended across four practice areas in The Legal 500 2022 UK rankings.
