Ogier has appointed Bryon Rees as a partner in its unds and corporate practice in Guernsey.
Rees joined Ogier in 2005 and has a broad practice, although with a focus on investment fund, corporate, regulatory and finance related work.
Rees is a Guernsey advocate, South African attorney and English solicitor. Legal directories describe him as technically excellent with great communication skills.
Ogier partner Marcus Leese says: “Bryon Rees has played a central role in our investment fund practice in Guernsey, supporting its early growth and more recent development alongside partners William Simpson and Frances Watson. Bryon has particular expertise in closed-ended PE funds and the related corporate, banking and finance needs of such structures. We are very pleased to welcome him into the partnership.”
Rees’ appointment, which takes effect 1 October, brings Ogier’s total partnership to 51, with seven in Guernsey.
