Mourant Ozannes a winner at China Business Law Awards
19 February 2014
Leading offshore law firm Mourant Ozannes has been announced as a winner in the China Business Law Journal's 2013 China Business Law Awards.
The firm was recognised in the category for 'best law firms for offshore work' as announced in the February 2014 issue of the China Business Law Journal. The success comes just two years since Paul Christopher, Mourant Ozannes' Hong Kong Managing Partner, relocated from Guernsey to head up the Hong Kong office.
Mr Christopher said he was thrilled to receive notification that the firm had won.
"To have been nominated for this award is a privilege, but knowing that our position as one of the best law firms was down to feedback from the people who work most closely with us, our clients, makes the achievement even more important," he said.
The awards are described by the China Business Law Journal as, 'a celebration of the most innovative and sophisticated legal work undertaken in China in the past year'. An extensive consultation exercise was undertaken by the judging panel, including client interviews and careful consideration of the achievements in relation to landmark deals, cases and the successes of each firm.
Jonathan Rigby, Mourant Ozannes' Global Managing Partner, said: "I am delighted and very proud for Mourant Ozannes to have won this award in such a highly competitive market. The recognition from our clients is testimony to the hard work and dedication of the Mourant Ozannes team in Hong Kong."
Based in Hong Kong, the China Business Law Journal is published 10 times a year in a bilingual format. The journal's editorial team includes China-focused professionals with more than 40 years' combined experience in leading media groups.
Guernsey Finance - the promotional agency for the Island's finance industry internationally - opened a representative office in Shanghai at the end of 2007. A delegation from Guernsey is heading to China in March to reinforce the Island's financial services offering to current and prospective Asia clients.
