(London) - Akin Gump has been named the “Best law firm - overall” at CTA Intelligence’s European CTA Services Awards 2015, announced on November 26 at a lunchtime ceremony at the Honourable Artillery Company, London.

The awards provide “recognition and reward for those hedge fund service providers that have demonstrated exceptional customer service and innovative product development over the past 12 months.”

This award follows success for Akin Gump at HFMWeek’s Asia Hedge Fund Services Awards 2015 at which the firm was named “Best Onshore Law Firm”, HFMWeek’s 2015 European Hedge Fund Services Awards at which it was named “Best Onshore Law Firm - Hedge Fund Start-Ups” for the second year running, and HFMWeek’s US Hedge Fund Services Awards, at which the firm was awarded the “Best Onshore Law Firm – Hedge Fund Start-ups”. The firm’s investment management practice has also won a number of other recent awards and accolades in Asia, Europe and the United States.

The firm’s 100+ lawyer global investment management practice was significantly enhanced in October 2014 by the arrival of a team of leading lawyers in its Hong Kong and London offices, including hedge funds and private funds lawyers, as well as significantly extending the firm’s U.K. and U.S. contentious and non-contentious financial regulatory capacity.
