Who’s Who Legal Bermuda Law Firm of the Year

June 2008

Conyers Dill & Pearman has been named Bermuda Law Firm of the Year 2008 in the Who’s Who Legal Awards. This is the third consecutive time the firm has been recognised in this way, and has won the award every year since its inception.

With the benefit of over ten years of independent research, Who’s Who Legal used the thousands of nominations it has received from clients and private practice professionals to identify the leading firms in 50 countries and five US states. The winners were formally announced in The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers 2008, a compendium edition of all the individual Who’s Who Legal publications, which was released in May, covering 29 practice areas and nearly 100 countries.

Editor in chief Callum Campbell said, “In a highly competitive field, receiving the Who’s Who Legal Law Firm of the Year Award for Bermuda a third time is a truly outstanding achievement. Conyers Dill & Pearman’s continuing success is reflected in the consistently positive feedback we received, recognising the firm’s exceptional individual and collective talent. We have no hesitation in once again declaring Conyers Dill & Pearman the leading firm in the country.”

Partners from the firm received sufficient nominations from their clients and peers to be listed 12 times across eight practice areas in the publication. Conyers Dill & Pearman had more practitioners included than any other firm in the country. Chairman of the firm John Collis appears as a leader in three areas of law, and was described as “one of the leading legal authorities in Bermuda” in the course of our research.

A list of the Conyers Dill & Pearman lawyers featured in The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers accompanies this release.

Who’s Who Legal lists only the leading practitioners in each field, based exclusively on the findings of an independent six-month research process. The awards are based on a number of factors, including the feedback received in the ongoing research process, past performance in the research and the overall aggregate number of weighted votes cast in their favour. In addition to identifying the overall leading firm in 50 countries and five US states, the awards also recognise the leading firm and individual in each practice area. The compendium edition is distributed free of charge to thousands of corporate counsel and private practice lawyers from around the world. The information is also available on and is updated daily.

This year, Who’s Who Legal was named Strategic Research Partner of the ABA Section of International Law in addition to its position as Official Research Partner of the International Bar Association. In 2006, Who’s Who Legal’s parent company Law Business Research was recognised by The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the area of international trade. These awards are the most prestigious a British company can receive.
