Carey Olsen turns 125

Wednesday 29 March 2023

Carey Olsen is marking its 125th anniversary this year with a number of events planned across a number of off-shore locations to celebrate the milestone.

The legal advisory firm was founded in Guernsey in 1898, and was originally known as Carey before rebranding itself as Carey Langlois.

In 2003 Carey Langlois merged with prominent Jersey law firm Olsens to become Carey Olsen.

Since then, the firm has grown to become one of the world's largest offshore law firms with a network of offices across Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Cape Town, Hong Kong, London, and Singapore as well as Guernsey and Jersey.

Group Managing Partner Alex Ohlsson said the firm is proud to offer services spanning the corporate and finance, trusts and private wealth, investment funds, insolvency, restructuring and dispute resolution sectors. 

"It is with great pride that we are celebrating our 125th anniversary this year," he said.

"Though we are now one of the largest offshore law firms, our heritage shines through as approachability, practicality and client relationships remain at the heart of our business.

"Looking ahead, we have ambitious growth plans and are investing heavily in our people and our key systems, as well as in developing our ESG and Diversity and Inclusion programmes, the latest of which is the launch of the Carey Olsen Women's Network.

"We are grateful to our clients for their ongoing support and to our staff for their unwavering commitment and determination, without which none of this would have been possible. We look forward to continuing this exciting journey for many years to come."
