Harneys has again been named Best Offshore Law Firm at the HFM Asia Hedge Fund Services Awards 2019, which were held on Thursday 24 January in Hong Kong.

The best offshore law firm award is bestowed on the 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.
Paul Sephton, Head of Harneys’ Asia Transactional Practice, commented: “Our funds team is honoured to have been named the Best Offshore Law Firm for the second year in a row. We pride ourselves in going the extra mile to deliver a top-notch service to our clients and it gives me great pleasure to see those efforts recognised, particularly when based on the feedback of happy clients and industry professionals.”
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 follows the wider Harneys’ Asia team’s win of International Law Firm of the Year at the China Offshore Awards in November 2018.
Harneys’ Asia funds team would like to dedicate the award to the memory of Jonathan Culshaw, former Asia Managing Partner and Global Head of Harneys’ Investment Funds and Regulatory practice, who passed away in September 2018.
