Mourant Ozannes has been awarded the 'Best Offshore Law Firm – Client Service Award' at the HFMWeek US Hedge Fund Services Awards 2012. This follows the firm winning the same client service accolade in both the US and Europe in 2011.
The winners of the US awards, which were announced at a ceremony held in New York on Thursday 18 October, were recognised for outstanding performance from June 2011 to July 2012. Mourant Ozannes funds partner Julian Fletcher from the firm's Cayman Islands office collected the award on behalf of the funds team.
The awards featured a number of categories that spanned the best and most cutting edge hedge fund service providers in the US marketplace, including the onshore and offshore legal, administration, accountancy, advisory, insurance and technology sectors.
The awards were judged by a panel of independent senior industry representatives who took into consideration financial progress, growth and innovation in order to put together a shortlist and identify the eventual winners of each category.
Jonathan Rigby, Mourant Ozannes' Managing Partner, said:
“We aim to differentiate ourselves on client service and I am delighted that this has been recognised by the panel of judges for this leading Hedge Funds publication. Winning this award for the second year in a row is a tremendous accolade for our team.”
