Laven up for three awards at HFM Week Service Provider Awards
Posted on 1 Feb 2010
We are pleased to announce that Laven has been shortlisted in the HFMWeek Service Provider Awards 2010.
Laven Partners – the hedge fund consultancy arm of the group – will compete in the categories of ‘Best Regulatory Advisory Firm’ and ‘Best Advisory Firm’.
Meanwhile, Laven Legal Services – the group’s related legal practice – has been nominated in the category of ‘Best Law Firm – Client Service’.
Last year, Laven Partners won the award for Best Regulatory Advisory Firm, and the judges noted that “in an age of growing regulation and corporate governance, Laven Partners’ experience and understanding of both hedge funds and compliance shone through.”
The winners’ announcement ceremony this year will be held on Thursday, 25 March 2010 at the London’s Hurlingham Club.
The HFMWeek Service Provider Awards cover various service providers to the hedge fund industry and candidates are judged on qualitative and quantitative criteria, including the strength of the candidates’ business models and product innovation. Candidates in the advisory categories include firms such as Ernst & Young, Kinetic Partners and IMS Consulting, while Laven Legal Services will compete against Simmons & Simmons, Dechert, Maples and Calder and Schulte Roth & Zabel for the award of Best Law Firm – Client Service.
“We are overjoyed to be shortlisted for the awards a second year running and among large and reputable group of service providers. This is proof that there is a place for the kind of niche expertise that is often missing from our larger industry peers”, said Jerome Lussan, CEO of the group. “We have always believed that we offer an alternative service and that our success is linked to our dedication to our clients, always providing straightforward, practical and complete advice.”
Robert Mirsky, Managing Director and Partner at Laven, who joined the group in 2009 from Ernst & Young, says: “The nominations evidence our commitment to the industry and to our clients. However, none of this would be possible without the hard work of our team. We are grateful for their continuing dedication and enthusiasm to our clients. It is that dedication that is truly reflected in these nominations.”
