Article Date - 28/03/2012 

Ogier Cayman announced today it was named ‘Best Offshore Law Firm’ at the 2012 HFMWeek European Hedge Fund Services Awards handed out at a special luncheon in London on Wednesday.

Today’s win marks the third time in six months that Ogier has been named ‘Best Offshore Law Firm’ by the international hedge fund industry.  The two other victories came from the 2011 Hedge Funds Review Service Provider Awards in December, and the 2011 HFMWeek’s U.S. Hedge Fund Services Awards in October (the U.S. version of today’s honour).

“Having been recognised in both New York and London as a leading offshore law firm for the hedge fund industry is an exceptional honour for Ogier,” said Peter Cockhill, Partner, Ogier Cayman and Head of Ogier’s Global Funds Practice.  “We have worked hard to build a ‘best-in-class’ hedge fund practice, so it is especially gratifying to see the industry we serve acknowledging our commitment to excellence.”
