Mourant Ozannes receives runner-up prize in offshore category at The Lawyer Awards
Mourant Ozannes has once again been named as one of the top offshore law firms in the world, coming runner-up in the category of Offshore Firm of the Year at The Lawyer Awards held in London last month.
According to the judges, Mourant Ozannes continues to make significant strides in its development since the merger of Mourants and Ozannes four years ago.
In their appraisal of the firm, the judges said: ‘Mourant Ozannes looks to be going from strength to strength and has put in place a new business strategy that will see it become a top-tier player in the four main offshore jurisdictions of the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey. Last year saw the firm advise a host of big-name clients on significant deals and pick up a growing number of transactions from its two-year-old Hong Kong office.’
Mourant Ozannes has won the accolade of Offshore Firm of the Year more times than any other firm, picking up the award three times since the category was launched in 2004.
