Hassans achieves a clean sweep of Tier 1 rankings in Legal 500.

Legal 500, one of the leading international legal directories which provides rankings of law firms based purely on client feedback, recently published their Europe, Middle East and Asia (EMEA) results.

The results show that Hassans continues to be the only firm ranked in the top tier in Corporate, Commercial and M&A, Investment Funds, Private Client, and Tax and is also ranked as a leading firm in Banking and Finance, Dispute Resolution, Real Estate and Construction and Technology, Media and Telecoms. Hassans also adds Shipping to its Tier 1 rankings this year, along with Gambling Law, a new section for Legal 500 EMEA.

Legal 500 commented on the Gibraltar market stating:

“The e-commerce and online gaming sectors remain key areas for the Gibraltarian market, with low taxes and appealing gambling legislation attracting online businesses and payment service providers to the jurisdiction. Gibraltar is also a key country for investment funds and financial services, with other core areas for law firms including private client work and shipping matters.

Gibraltar continued its growth and development with the successful launch in 2015 of the Gibraltar Stock Exchange and Gibraltar International Bank, along with the University of Gibraltar, which opened in September 2015.”

The directory highlights 27 of Hassans’ lawyers as recommended lawyers (up from 22 last year) and 14 of those listed as leaders in their field. Partners Joseph Abudarham, Nigel Acris, Isaac Levy (‘a rising star with great potential’), Grahame Jackson (“sharp and innovative”), Anthony Provasoli and Michele Walsh all joined the recommended lawyers list this year.

Valuable client feedback continued to feed the directory with resounding praise across the board for the Hassans’ lawyers and teams, with some of the many highlights including quoting the Corporate and Commercial team as ‘efficient, effective and highly personable’, the Dispute Resolution team ‘always provides a thorough and professional response’, and the Investment Funds team ‘gives every level of legal advice needed, with excellent response times and exceptional professionalism’.

Javier Chincotta, Managing Partner at Hassans, commented:

“Receiving feedback of this nature not only concretes Hassans’ reputation but also the reputation of Gibraltar as a key jurisdiction in which to do business. The legal directories are important to all law firms in Gibraltar and globally as they are genuine indicators of how well we are doing in providing a service to our client locally and internationally. Needless to say, we are extremely proud of our performance this year and thank our clients for taking the time to provide the feedback on our service to them.”
