Bedell Cristin has won the ‘Offshore Law Firm of the Year’ category in the prestigious new Legal 500 UK Awards 2013.

The Legal 500, widely regarded by many as the most authoritative research guide to the leading law firms, has this year for the first time launched their own awards which they describe as ‘unique within the legal industry…and sets the benchmark for excellence across the UK legal market'. They have undertaken research to pinpoint the most capable, expert practitioners and firms operating across a number of different business sectors.

Winners are invited to a networking event in London hosted by the Legal 500 which is restricted to the winners in the various categories.

It is the latest in a number of award wins for the firm during 2013, which has included ‘International Law Firm of the Year’ in the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards and ‘Offshore Law Firm of the Year’ in the UK Captive Service Awards 2013.

Richard Gerwat, Managing Partner, commented:

"Accolades such as this are only earned by ensuring we provide the highest possible levels of client service and that we deliver those same uniformly high standards consistently throughout the firm wherever we operate.

This latest acknowledgement is testament to all the hard work that our teams consistently demonstrate on a daily basis, coupled with the long standing positive working relationships we have established with our clients".
