Bryon joined Ogier in 2005 and has a broad practice, although with a focus on investment fund, corporate, regulatory and finance related work.

Bryon 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 said: “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.”

Bryon’s appointment, which takes effect 1 October, brings Ogier’s total partnership to 51, with seven in Guernsey.

Ogier’s Guernsey team is ranked Tier 1 in three leading legal directories – Chambers UK 2015 (corporate finance including investment funds), IFLR Corporate Finance and Investment Fund sectors, and Legal 500 2014, in the Commercial and Banking sector.
