James Bergstrom appointed as Legal CEO at Ogier

Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: The Ogier Group have announced that James Bergstrom has been appointed as Legal Chief Executive Officer from February 2012. The Ogier Group is one of the leading providers of legal and fiduciary services and employs over 850 people across ten different jurisdictions.

Nick Kershaw, who previously held both the Group Chief Executive and the Legal Chief Executive roles, has handed over the Legal Chief Executive role to James and continues as the Group Chief Executive, having been elected for a second three year term. Nick will also be returning part time to a client facing role.

James joined Ogier's Cayman office in 1991 and became a partner in 1998. He was the Managing Partner of the Cayman office from 2002 to 2010 and head of Ogierís global investment funds team from 2006 until the end of 2010. He relocated to Hong Kong in 2011 to head up the Hong Kong office as Managing Partner, which is now the fastest growing office in the Ogier Group.

James said "Itís a privilege to work with so many gifted and talented lawyers and I am proud to be CEO of the legal team. It is an exciting time in the Ogier Group's history as we continue to develop our legal and fiduciary offerings in the Asia Pacific region and into the Eurozone when we open in Luxembourg later this year. These developments are an integral part of our strategy to provide the most innovative and comprehensive multi-jurisdictional services, through a significant presence in each of the worldís key financial markets and across all time zones."
