Isle of Man: Cains Short-Listed For Offshore Law Firm Of The Year 2008
Last Updated: 22 May 2008

Cains has been short-listed in the ‘offshore law firm of the year’ category by the judges of The Lawyer Awards 2008.

The Lawyer Awards are a great opportunity to celebrate the excellence housed within the profession, and an event that is pitched to be one of the biggest nights of the year for the legal profession.

The judging panel, composed of a group of senior advisers from the great and the good in City institutions and the media, ensures that the award for ‘offshore law firm of the year’ is presented to a firm that demonstrates strategic clarity, technical legal excellence and quality control, growth in market share, and a firm that has progressed within the jurisdiction in which they operate.

Andrew Corlett, managing director of Cains, said: "We are delighted to be short-listed for this prestigious award by The Lawyer Awards. We are exceptionally pleased to have our recent successes recognised by such a highly regarded publication."

"For the past couple of years our emphasis has been on forging closer links with the City of London and other major financial centres. We have established ourselves as the top legal adviser to FTSE AIM 100 companies, many of which are non-UK companies."

"In the short to medium term, we see the future of much of the global economy lying with the emerging markets, which has been the reason for our continued promotion of our services in order to secure key clients from emerging global economies such as India, Russia and China. For instance, as part of those promotional activities, we accompanied The Lord Mayor of the City of London, as members of the business delegation, on his recent visit to Chenai, Mumbai and Pune. In order to better serve our Asian based clients we will open an office in Singapore in July 2008."

"The inclusion of Cains in the short list for The Lawyer Awards 2008 is an excellent endorsement of the Isle of Man’s success as an international financial centre which is ideally positioned to be the strategic partner of choice for the global business community"

Cains have been shortlisted for the award ‘offshore law firm of the year’ along with Appleby, Carey Olsen, Conyers Dill & Pearman, Mourant du Feu & Jeune, Oostvogels Pfister Feyten.

The Lawyer Awards 2008 will take place on 24th June at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London. There are 28 awards in total.
