Last Updated: 12 June 2009

Cains, the Isle of Man-based commercial law firm, enjoyed great success at the recent ALB SE Asia Awards 2009 held at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Singapore. The firm acted in the GMR – Intergen financing and acquisition transaction which won the Asset and Corporate Finance Deal of the Year and the financing of the Resorts World Sentosa which was awarded Project Finance Deal of the Year. Later in the evening, in the two mostly highly coveted awards, Resorts World Sentosa won the Singapore Deal of the Year and GMR- Intergen the SE Asia Deal of the Year.

The ALB SE Asia Law Awards, which is organised by ALB the leading Asian legal publication, recognises the excellence of south east Asia’s leading law firms as well as the top deals and dealmakers. The evening of the awards, which are held annually, is regarded as the most important night for the legal profession in the region.

Mike Edwards, a director Cains and head of its Singapore office, said: "We were proud to be part of the teams whose work was recognised at the ALB SE Asia Awards. In the short period of time since we established our office in Singapore, we have been instructed in some very high-profile transactions in the region and we are grateful for the continued support of our Asian clients."
