Harneys is Hedgeweek's Offshore Law Firm of the Year for a second year running

Citing the continued growth of Harneys investment funds practice, Hedgeweek has named Harneys as “Best Offshore Law Firm – Global” for the second consecutive year.

The firm's investment funds practice has continued to grow, particularly in Cayman, where Harneys has rapidly closed the gap between it and other firms in the jurisdiction through a number of key hires,” said Hedgeweek in announcing the selection.

Harneys is not just a typical offshore law firm that churns out documents and makes sure a fund launches on time. It wants to evolve to become a much more relationship-based law firm which acts as a fundamental tool in the armoury of all its investment manager clients,” Hedgeweek said.

In response, Philip Graham, Partner and Head of Harneys’ BVI Investment Funds Group, commented: “We are thrilled and honoured to have won this prestigious award for Best Offshore Law Firm. This is an incredibly exciting time for Harneys as our global investment funds practice continues to grow at pace, particularly in Cayman, the BVI, Hong Kong and Latin America. We are all excited for what lies ahead and look forward to the future.
Hedgeweek's awards are based on review by institutional investors, asset managers, service providers, advisers and trading technology companies, among others. The awards were presented on 21 September in New York.
