Harneys named Offshore Law Firm of the Year for investment funds excellence

Global offshore law firm 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.

Harneys operates through 14 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 through a number of key hires, including Appleby’s global head of investment funds, Ian Gobin

Jonathan Culshaw, Harneys Global Head of Investment Funds and Regulatory, commented: “As one of the most dynamic, fastest growing offshore funds teams worldwide, Harneys’ momentum and challenger brand in the market has been reflected by a number of awards and accolades for our funds practice. We are pleased to receive this recognition from Hedgeweek, in recognition of the strength and reputation of our global funds team.” 

HedgeWeek's awards are based on review by institutional investors, asset managers, service providers, advisers and trading technology companies, among others. 

The award follows a number of recognitions for Harneys' investment funds practice, including, in 2016, HFM Week's USA, Asia and Europe awards, two Africa Funds Global Awards, and Best Offshore Law Firm for Hedge Funds at the Hedge Fund China Summit in Shanghai. In 2016, Harneys was also named The Lawyer’s Offshore Law Firm of the Year for outstanding legal excellence, market-leading strategy and commercial strength.
