Hassans was awarded Law Firm of the Year at the European Captive Review Services Awards 2016 held in Luxembourg on 7 November.
Nigel Feetham, a Hassans’ Partner and captive expert, led the submission which resulted in defeating a leading UK law firm, Ince & Co, to take home this year’s award. The international law firm was also shortlisted for Cell Captive Initiative and Solvency II Initiative.
“The judges were impressed by the commitment of Hassans, and partner Nigel Feetham in particular, for their commitment to the captive insurance and insurance-linked securities (ILS) markets in Gibraltar,” a spokesman for the judges of the competition said. “Feetham was recognised as a leading mind in cell captive and ILS business within the unique Gibraltar market, as well as his thought leadership concerning cell company legal issues around the world.”
This latest accolade completes a hat trick of awards for Hassans and Nigel during 2016 having received a ‘Highly Commended’ last month for ‘Innovation in Business Development and Knowledge Sharing’ earlier this year.
