Hassans awarded “Leading Law Firm of the Year” in Gibraltar

February 2014

Hassans International Law Firm was awarded Leading Law Firm of the Year - Gibraltar at the CityWealth International Financial Centre Awards held on 23rd January 2013 in London. Line Group, Hassans associated fiduciary arm, also received Runner Up in the Trust Company of the Year - Gibraltar category.

The awards, which are now in their third year, highlight the excellence of the advisors and managers in the private wealth sector in the major international financial centres. Cecilia Bravo collected the award on behalf of Hassans with the evening being hosted by Rory Bremner (see image).

 

CityWealth stated:

"In what has been a period of extreme turbulence for clients this is when quality advice is at a premium. It is when the best of the best really stand out."

Clients of the nominated firms were approached for their feedback and the results then judged by an international panel of highly respected practitioners from all sectors. Winners were selected based on achievement, innovation, expertise and service.

Karen Jones, Editor at Citywealth, commented:

"The online voting for these awards doubled to 5,000 for the contest this year which means UHNW individuals, family offices, intermediaries, trustees and private bankers have all participated to find our winners."

James Levy QC CBE, Senior Partner, Hassans, said:

"I am delighted that Hassans has been recognised as the leading law firm in Gibraltar, complemented by recognition of our associate fiduciary arm, Line Group. We continuously strive to demonstrate our commitment and expertise which allows us to offer the best quality of service to all our clients, locally and worldwide and we are thrilled that this has been reflected in the opinions of our valued clients".

Gibraltar - as you know - is attached to Southern Spain. Gibraltar and its position in the European Union is quite a fascinating study and a fascinating situation to explain.
