Hassans recently received unique recognition for its gaming experts with the publication of this year’s renowned Chambers and Partners directory.
Having been listed continuously for the past 14 years as a leading law firm in Gibraltar, two of Hassans’ Partners, Peter Montegriffo QC and Nyreen Llamas join just 35 other lawyers from around the world, specifically recognised for their work within this industry on both an international and local level.
Hassans also topped the leading lawyers table with 17 of the firm’s partners ranked as leading in Gibraltar, whilst James Levy CBE QC, Hassans’ Senior Partner was again listed as the only ‘Star’ individual in Gibraltar in the field of General Business Law.
These rankings follow Hassans being listed 9th in a definitive list of the world’s top 30 offshore law firms (2016) as published by The Lawyer, a leading weekly legal publication. Only the major multi-jurisdiction firms such as Maples and Calder, Ogier and Conyers Dill Pearson rank higher than Hassans.
Javier Chincotta, Managing Partner, commenting on the rankings stated:
“It is an accurate reflection that Hassans has been recognised and rewarded for its work on the international playing field, not just locally. Particularly in the current climate, it is critical that we continue to broaden our reach further than Gibraltar, as well as looking after our client base locally, and this recent recognition is testament to our lawyers’ success in doing so.”
James Levy CBE QC, Senior Partner, added:
“It’s no surprise, but extremely welcome news, that Peter and Nyreen have joined the company of international lawyers from legal powerhouses such as DLA Piper, Cuatrecasa and Jones Walker as they are absolutely working at that level.”
