Bedell Cristin Guernsey wins top captive award for third year

28 Jan 2015

Bedell Cristin Guernsey has been named Offshore Law Firm of the Year in the UK Captive Services Awards 2015.

It is the third time in a succession that the firm has won the award category which recognises contributions to the captive market through legal expertise and innovation excellence in the delivery and management of captive insurance and celebrates those who have shaped the industry in the last year.

Bedell Cristin managing partner in Guernsey, Mark Helyar, commented:

"To be named as the leading offshore firm for the third successive time is an endorsement of the expertise the firm offers in this sector and demonstrates our consistent ability to remain at the forefront of the captive market. Already in the top tier as an insurance and reinsurance practice, we continue to take an increasingly large share of the insurance market, with the use of innovative structures in the captive and ILS market a feature of our growing activity in 2014."

The UK Captive Service Awards acknowledge those captive insurance service providers that have demonstrated exceptional customer service and innovative product development over the past 12 months. More than 20 awards in a variety of captive insurance disciplines were presented, as part of the Captive UK Live 2015 conference, in a prestigious ceremony at the London Banking Hall in January.

The captive award follows earlier award successes for the law firm last year including ‘Offshore Law Firm of the Year’ in the Chambers Europe Excellence Award 2014.
