For the second consecutive year, Harneys has been named Best Offshore Law Firm - Global by Hedgeweek, in an annual awards ceremony which recognises excellence in the global investment funds industry.
Head of Harneys’ Investment Funds team in the Cayman Islands, Ian Gobin, commented: "By continuing to challenge the industry norms, and at the same time holding onto our core values and historical roots, Harneys is innovating and enhancing the market for offshore. We are pleased to receive this recognition from Hedgeweek, in recognition of the strength and reputation of our global funds team, and we thank our clients and business partners in the industry.”
Counsel Rob McIntyre and Senior Associate Thomas Dugdale represented Harneys at the awards ceremony which was held in London on 9 March.
HedgeWeek's awards are based on review by institutional investors, asset managers, service providers, advisers and trading technology companies, among others.
Harneys operates through 12 international locations and its global funds practice advises on all aspects of offshore investment funds establishment, maintenance and restructuring. The firm's investment funds practice has continued to grow, particularly in Cayman, where Harneys has rapidly closed the gap between other firms in the jurisdiction.
The award follows a number of recognitions for Harneys' investment funds practice including, in 2017, Hedgeweek’s USA and Global awards and HFM Week's USA, Asia and Europe awards.
