ST HELIER, Jersey, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Mourant Ozannes has been named Best Offshore Law Firm at the HFM European Hedge Fund Services Awards. The awards recognise outstanding support and service to the European Hedge Fund industry and celebrate those service providers that have outperformed their peers through the volatility of the past twelve months.
Best Offshore Law Firm is the overall award in the legal services category. Last year Mourant Ozannes was named Best Offshore Law Firm for client service at the HFM Week US Hedge Fund Services Awards.
The award was collected by partner Robert Duggan, head of Mourant Ozannes' Cayman Islands practice in London, who said: "It is a great honour to receive the award for Best Offshore Law Firm at these awards, not only for the industry recognition of our market-leading practice which the award connotes, but also as a reward for the hard work of everyone in our talented team".
Ben Robins, Head of Funds for Mourant Ozannes globally added: "Our aim is to provide cutting-edge legal advice together with the highest level of client service and support, so to be named Best Offshore Law Firm at such a prestigious event, and from such a strong shortlist, is a very welcome endorsement of our services to the funds industry. It's a terrific accolade, not only for our funds practice, but for the firm generally."
