Harneys wins award for Investment Funds work in Asia

Harneys is pleased to announce a second awards win for investment funds work this month, with its Asia practice winning Best Offshore Law Firm for Hedge Funds at the second annual Hedge Fund China Summit in Shanghai. This follows Harneys receiving the award for Best Offshore Law Firm - Client Service at the HFM European Hedge Fund Services Awards in London. The awards stand testament to the increasing profile and industry recognition of Harneys’ global investment funds team.

Harneys has one of the most dynamic and fastest growing offshore funds teams in the world and its Asia funds team, with lawyers based in Hong Kong and Singapore, is an increasingly important one, advising on a growing number of high profile transactions.

More generally, the firm has expanded to become one of the largest offshore firms in Asia, most recently with the hire of ex-Walkers finance counsel Paul Sephton, who joined as Partner, and associates Leela Patel, James McKnight and Sharon Cong. From Hong Kong and Singapore, the firm provides full service legal advice on the laws of  BVI, Cayman, Bermuda and Anguilla.
