Ogier Cayman named ‘Best Offshore Law Firm’ for a second year

Friday, March 02, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update – Ogier Cayman announced today it has secured top honours in the 2012 Hedgeweek Awards, including ‘Best Offshore Law Firm’ – the second year in a row it has secured that accolade – and runner up in the ‘Best Offshore Regulatory Advisory Firm’ category.

“We are extremely pleased to once again be recognised across the board for the talent, capabilities and depth of our funds practice,” said Peter Cockhill, Partner, Ogier Cayman and Head of Ogier’s Global Funds Practice. “Being acknowledged through these important industry awards is particularly gratifying as Ogier continually strives to deliver the highest quality integrated legal and fiduciary services to the alternative investment industry, especially given today’s challenging global environment to our industry.”

Cockhill added that it is a vindication of its service providers and regulatory regime that Cayman maintains its global leadership position as having the largest proportion of the world’s hedge funds under domicile, with 9,2581 funds as of 31 December 2011, essentially unchanged from 2010.

The winners of Hedgeweek’s annual awards programme are determined by votes derived from a proportion of the publication’s 40,000 subscribers, representing a cross section of fund industry participants, including individual and institutional investors, fund managers, administrators, prime brokers, custodians and advisers.

(press release)

Ogier is the only offshore firm offering legal and fiduciary services that has a substantive presence in the four leading offshore centres: the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey. Ogier Cayman has a staff of 135 and offers a full range of offshore legal and fiduciary services to clients around the world. www.ogier.com
