Harneys Awarded Best Offshore Law Firm at HFM Asia Hedge Fund Services Awards

Harneys has been named Best Offshore Law Firm at the HFM Asia Hedge Fund Services Awards, announced on Thursday 28 September at the Four Seasons in Singapore.  The award is bestowed on the offshore law firm that demonstrates a consistently high level of legal service provision to clients in conjunction with innovative product development, impressive revenue growth and overall commercial success. 

Winners are selected via a rigorous judging process undertaken by a panel of impartial experts, with particular focus given to client testimonials in addition to feedback from market participants and senior funds industry representatives.  This is the fourth consecutive HFM Awards at which Harneys has been honoured, the team having won three individual awards for Best Offshore Law Firm – Client Service at each of the Asia, European and US awards last year.

Jonathan Culshaw, Asia Managing Partner and Global Head of Harneys’ Investment Funds and Regulatory practice, commented: “Harneys’ Asia funds team is delighted to have trumped our successful win last year to be named the overall Best Offshore Law Firm at this year’s awards.  We consistently strive to go above and beyond in providing value to our clients and to go one step further than our competitors in our service delivery.  We are never more proud than to win awards which are based on our clients’ feedback and believe that this is testament to a service that is second to none in Asia's offshore investment funds arena." 

The award affirms the strength and reputation of Harneys’ Asia funds practice, which is one of the most dynamic and fastest growing offshore funds teams in the region.  It comes just weeks after the wider Harneys team’s win of Offshore Law Firm of the Year at Asian Legal Business’ Hong Kong Awards on 8 September, which is judged by some of the leading names in law and business in Asia.

Harneys’ Asia team continues to go from strength to strength, now constituting the largest offshore law firm in Hong Kong.  Its four-office Asia network across Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai and Tokyo is also the largest of any offshore law firm in Asia.
