Offshore Firm Chief Leaves For Hedge Fund

Jun 9 2008 | 11:40am ET

Offshore fund administrator and law firm Mourant du Feu & Jeune is losing its CEO to a hedge fund.

Stephen Ball is to become vice chairman of an unnamed hedge fund based in London, The Lawyer reports. He led the firm for two years, overseeing its merger with Cayman Islands-based law firm and administration firm Quin and Hampson.

“Leading Mourant has been a great adventure, and although I’m going to miss my friends there, we won’t lose touch—I’ll continue the relationship as a client,” Ball said.

Jonathan Rigby, who ran Mourant’s London office from 2003 to 2006, has been named the firm’s new managing partner.
