​Harneys named Best Offshore Law Firm - Client Service in Asia and Europe by HFMWeek

20 September 2016

Harneys has been named Best Offshore Law Firm - Client Service at the HFM Asia Hedge Fund Services Awards, announced on 19 September 2016. 

Award winners are selected annually based on feedback from clients, market participants and senior representatives across the funds industry in Asia. This award follows a number of funds and global awards for the firm this year, including HFMWeek Europe Best Offshore Law Firm - Client Service, the Best Offshore Law Firm for Hedge Funds at the Hedge Fund China Summit in Shanghai, and The Lawyer Offshore Law Firm of the Year for 2016.

Jonathan Culshaw, Harneys Global Head of Investment Funds and Regulatory, commented: “The HFM Awards are high profile in the funds industry and the client service award is independently judged based on the relative strength of client testimonials and market feedback.  Each of the recent wins signals the growing strength and reputation of our global funds team.”

The award marks a year of increased activity for Harneys’ Investment Funds practice. In Cayman, Harneys expanded with the hire of three funds specialists, including Appleby’s global head of investment funds, Ian Gobin. The firm continues to dominate in the BVI, where it acts for longstanding asset managers including GAM. In Latin America it continues to be ranked as the only Tier 1 offshore firm and represents some of the region’s largest fund structures, and in Asia the firm has grown to be one of the largest offshore firms in Hong Kong, marking 2016 by opening a representative office in Shanghai.
