Dechert Wins Top HFM Hedge Fund Award in Europe

March 29, 2019

Dechert LLP has been named the “Best Onshore Law Firm” at the HFM European Hedge Fund Services Awards 2019.

The firm’s financial services group, which represents 24 of the world’s top 25 largest global asset management firms, was recognized for its broad sector expertise, spanning from start-ups to institutional billion-dollar hedge fund managers – and everything in between.

“It is heartening to see rewards for the efforts our group has made over the past year,” said Abbie Bell, partner in the financial services group. “We have been working extraordinarily hard to provide full-service support to our clients, whether they need assistance with growing their hedge fund businesses, navigating Brexit or launching in a new jurisdiction.”

Highlights of the group’s recent work include advising on one of the year’s most significant fund launches in London. Dechert advised Soloda Investment Advisors on the establishment of a Cayman Islands-domiciled macro fund managed by Hashim Dhoda, spinning out from Moore Capital. The fund launched with over US$100 million.

The HFM European Hedge Fund Services Awards, now in their 10th year, honor service providers in the hedge funds sector who have demonstrated exceptional client service, innovative product development and strong and sustainable business growth over the past 12 months.

At last year’s awards, Dechert was honored as the best onshore law firm for client service.

This year, winners were selected by a panel of judges and announced at a gala dinner on March 28 at the Natural History Museum in London.
