Hatstone Lawyers wins Boutique Law Firm of the Year at the Citywealth 2016 International Finance Centre Awards

Jersey corporate and private client law firm Hatstone Lawyers has been named boutique law firm of the year at the Citywealth 2016 IFC awards. The award recognises the firm as having excelled in achievement, innovation, expertise and service as judged by an international panel of practitioners from the private wealth sector.

Hatstone Lawyers are often engaged in transactions with or against tier one law firms in the corporate and private client sphere and that success has been built upon following the arrival of litigation Partner Mike Preston in 2015.

Group Partner Simon Vivian collected the award on behalf of the firm and commented:

“When we started Hatstone Lawyers it was our ambition to be a client focused firm specialising in particular areas of offshore practice and delivering a high quality service to our clients. This award recognises how far we have come in the last 4 years and as a firm we are committed to continue to strive for excellence in the future.”

Jersey based Hatstone Lawyers also has offices in South Africa and Panama.
