Last Updated: 8 July 2009

Multi-jurisdictional law firm Conyers Dill & Pearman was named Offshore Law Firm of the Year at The Lawyer Awards held in London on Tuesday, June 23rd.

According to the judges’ criteria, the award is presented to the firm which demonstrates superior strategic clarity, growth of market share, technical legal excellence and quality of service. Conyers fulfilled each of those categories and the firm was commended for an "outstanding year".

Christopher Johnson-Gilbert, managing partner of Conyers’ London office, collected the award at the ceremony which was held at Grosvenor House and attended by over 1000 lawyers. Mr. Johnson-Gilbert commented: "We are delighted to receive this award, which reflects the hard work of everyone across the firm over the past year in providing the highest quality legal advice on the leading offshore jurisdictions of the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, Bermuda and Mauritius. Our strategic purpose and our balanced business model have seen continued success even in times of global difficulties."

The past year has been one of significant expansion for Conyers during which it has advised on a number of high profile deals, consolidated its position in relation to the BRIC markets with new offices in Moscow and São Paolo, and the addition of a Mauritius office and a global Mauritius practice. Conyers has also gained market share in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands, and maintained its dominance in the Bermuda market. Conyers continues to expand with new hires, and now numbers nearly 600 staff with over 150 lawyers located in 11 offices worldwide.
