Leading offshore law firm Mourant Ozannes has been voted the Best Offshore Law Firm at the Hedgeweek Global Awards, an annual event which recognises excellence among hedge fund managers and service providers around the world.

Online news publisher Hedgeweek received over 1,600 nominations from readers, including institutional and high net worth investors as well as managers and other industry professionals, for companies that they rated "best in class" in more than 40 categories. Mourant Ozannes received the most votes in the "Best Offshore Law Firm" category and collected their award at the Hedgeweek Global Awards ceremony in Mayfair on Friday 28 February.

Ben Robins, partner and head of Mourant Ozannes' Funds practice commented: "This is a fantastic accolade for the firm and particularly for our funds team globally. Hedgeweek is one of the industry's most respected publications and it is a privilege to receive the recognition that this award represents, in the knowledge that the votes were cast by our peers and colleagues."

This latest award follows Mourant Ozannes' success at the Hedgeweek 2013 USA awards which also saw the firm voted as Best Offshore Law Firm.
