Mourant du Feu & Jeune has been voted the Best Offshore Legal Firm by readers of Hedgeweek, one of the hedge fund industry’s leading publications.

Hedgeweek canvassed the views of its 56,000 daily readers, including 20,000 institutional investors, to assess the best hedge fund performers and service providers.

The winners were selected not just for their performance, but for a number of distinguishing factors, including innovation, consistency, depth of knowledge and transparency. Readers rated Mourant in particular for “expertise, availability and quick service.”

“To win Best Offshore Law Firm is a fantastic accolade,” said Neal Lomax, head of Mourant du Feu & Jeune’s Cayman Islands office. “The firm has industry leading expertise in the structuring of hedge funds and our practice has grown considerably over recent years.”

Ed Devenport, partner in Mourant du Feu & Jeune’s Jersey office, collected the award on behalf of the firm at a ceremony in London in March. He said:

“Mourant du Feu & Jeune’s offshore hedge fund legal services are among the very best in the world. We thank the readers of Hedgeweek for voting for us.”
