Ogier has been ranked top offshore law firm in the Alpha Awards 2016 by specialist hedge fund publisher Institutional Investor.
As well as being named top firm overall, Ogier has been given the No 1 spot in the five aspects of service most highly rated by clients:
- hedge fund expertise
- client service
- regulatory and compliance
- document preparation
- fund formation and tax law expertise
Ogier partner Giorgio Subiotto said: “We are thrilled to see Ogier ranked number one in all of the top five areas most important to our clients.
“In a market which remains dominated by the three offshore firms which have been at the forefront of Cayman funds for the last 20 years, this result clearly recognizes Ogier’s pre-eminence and reflects our commitment to excellent client service and to the point advice.
“The depth of our experience and the global reach of our practice, including our unique offering in Luxembourg, enables us to anticipate our clients’ needs and offer focused solutions.”
Announcing the award, Institutional Investor says: “Ogier is unique in that it has a significant onshore fund practice as well, based in Luxembourg. Ogier’s specific expertise is in working with closed-ended funds and much of its work is with private equity firms and their portfolio companies.”
