Top private client firm
Hatstone Lawyers has been named by eprivateclient as one of the world’s top private client firms in its 2020 Top Offshore Law Firm rankings.
The rankings are based on a survey of over fifty leading private client firms. They recognise the success of Hatstone’s fast-growing team of partners, lawyers and other professionals in the BVI, Jersey, London, Panama and South Africa, in providing outstanding legal, fund administration, trust and corporate services to private and corporate clients across the globe.
Group Partner, Simon Vivian said: “We are delighted to be recognised by eprivateclient as a top private client firm. Our clients consistently tell us how much they value our global team’s pragmatic and timely advice to guide them through the complex legal and corporate challenges of managing transactions and assets across multiple jurisdictions. We are a young and dynamic firm, but we have a wealth of experience across all areas of offshore practice and deep relationships with other leading firms around the world. It is very pleasing to see this recognised as we continue to develop the compelling offering for our clients which eprivateclient has recognised.”
