Cayman Islands: Walkers Wins Best Offshore Law Firm Award At 2015 HFM Week US Hedge Fund Services Awards
Last Updated: 4 November 2015

​Walkers Cayman has been honoured in the HFM US Awards 2015.

Walkers was awarded the Best Offshore Law Firm Award for 2015. The judges recognised Walkers' major expansion effort in 2015 and Walkers' commitment to the formation, restructuring and regulatory work that it performs within the alternative investment fund industry.

Our aim at Walkers is to always provide the very best in legal advice, assist our clients to achieve their commercial objectives and to be in the jurisdictions and provide the services that our clients demand. In response to such demand, Walkers re-entered the corporate and fiduciary services business with the launch of Walkers Professional Services and will be expanding our global legal foot print to Bermuda by the end of the year.

Walkers is able to remain at the forefront of all legal and regulatory developments in the investment funds industry through the quality of its people. Our lawyers are key members of alternative investment industry associations such as the Alternative Investment Management Association, Cayman Finance and the Irish Funds Industry Association. Our lawyers have been directly involved in developing Cayman Islands legislation for the implementation of FATCA and the OECD's Common Reporting Standards, developing the AIFMD marketing passport for non-EU AIFs, the drafting of the Cayman Limited Liability Company laws, soon to be enacted, the amendments of the Exempted Limited Partnership Law, consultation on the BVI incubator funds legislation and assisting the Irish Funds Industry Association working group on drafting the new UCITS statutory instrument (which will replace the existing Central Banks UCITS notices).
