Ogier has been named as a finalist in two categories of the HFM Asia Hedge Fund Services Awards 2017, as Best Offshore Law Firm overall and Best Offshore Law Firm – Client Service.
This is the second recognition of Ogier's achievements in the Asian marketplace this summer, following the firm's shortlisting as Offshore Law Firm of the Year in the Asian Legal Business Hong Kong Law Awards 2017.
The HFM Asia Hedge Fund Services Awards recognise hedge fund services providers that have demonstrated exceptional customer service, innovative product development and responsive to client needs.
Several members of Ogier's Hong Kong team have also been recognised for their work in the past year. Partners Nicholas Plowman and Anthony Oakes were both named in Asian Legal Business' top ten offshore lawyers (both appearing on the list for the second year in a row), and the same publisher named fellow partner Kate Hodson as one of the 40 top lawyers under the age of 40 in Asia.
Ogier's Hong Kong practice partner Nicholas Plowman said: "Our team is widely recognised as a leader in the investment funds space in Asia and our expertise in Cayman and BVI law in particular remains a key draw for clients. Ogier in Hong Kong continues to go from strength to strength, and this latest cluster of award nominations is testament to that."
The winners of the HFM Asia Hedge Fund Services Awards will be announced at a ceremony on 28 September at the Four Seasons, Singapore.
