Mr Meiklejohn's "exceptional knowledge and experience in the private client field" was highlighted in the Legal 500. Mrs Melia was recognised for "making clients feel confident they will achieve the right outcome."

Jonathan Hughes, Ogier's Global Senior Service Line head, said: "This is very welcome recognition for three of our most senior leaders which reflects not just their technical expertise and status in the market, but also the hard work of the teams that they lead. Steve, Simon and Julie are widely recognized as leaders in their fields of practice and the feedback cited by Legal 500 demonstrates just how much they are valued by their clients."

Siobhan Riley, the Head of Carey Olsen's Jersey trusts and private wealth practice was also named on the list, for "her wonderful expertise makes her easy to discuss matters with."
