Harneys has been named Best Offshore Law Firm by Hedgeweek, at its annual European awards ceremony.
Thomas Dugdale, a member of the firm’s Investment Funds team, represented Harneys at the ceremony which was held in London on 26 February.
The Hedgeweek European awards replace the previous Global awards in which Harneys was named Best Offshore Law firm for three consecutive years. The awards recognise excellence among hedge fund managers and service providers. Winners were selected by a peer review survey of Hedgeweek readers which included industry professionals at hedge fund management firms, investors, fund administrators, custodians, accountants and auditors, law firms, consultants and fund distributors.
Joint global head of Harneys Investment Funds, Philip Graham, commented: “We are delighted to receive this award, which continues to demonstrate the strength and reputation of our global funds team. We would like to thank our clients and industry peers for nominating us.”
Harneys advises on all aspects of the life of a BVI, Cayman, Cyprus or Luxembourg fund including formation, restructuring and closure, both in distressed and planned scenarios. Harneys funds lawyers work alongside Harneys Fiduciary, the firm’s associated corporate and fiduciary services arm, providing clients with an integrated legal and administrative service.
