Carey Olsen is a leading offshore law firm. We advise on Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey law across a global network of nine international offices.

We are a full service law firm working across banking and finance, corporate and M&A, investment funds and private equity, trusts and private wealth, dispute resolution, insolvency and property law.

Corporate work is a cornerstone of our legal services offering, and we have one of the largest corporate teams in the offshore legal market. Our lawyers are skilled at creating new structures for commercial growth, advising on public and private mergers and acquisitions and completing exchange-based listings, as well as advising boards and shareholders.

Our investment funds and private equity team is both well regarded and highly active, and advises on all fund structures, including open and closed-ended, limited partnerships, unit trusts and companies. 

Recognised as the leading legal adviser to funds across the Channel Islands (Monterey Insight), and with strong Caribbean and Asia practices, we represent more companies and funds listed on the London Stock Exchange than any other offshore law firm (Corporate Advisers Rankings) and regularly advise on listings on the NYSE and HKEx, Euronext, CSX and TISE.
