Jersey law firm launches in Cayman Islands


Baker and Partners has opened a new office in the Cayman Islands.

Cayman lawyer Robert Jones, who currently serves as Chair of the Cayman Islands Labour Tribunal and Chair of the Disciplinary Tribunal of the Cayman Islands Institute of Professional Accountants (CIIPA), will serve as Managing Director for the new office.

Alongside other existing members of the Baker and Partners team, the new Cayman office will enable the firm to provide local, on-the-ground advice and assistance for major legal disputes involving the Cayman Islands through Baker and Partners (Cayman) Limited.

The launch is the latest milestone for the firm, which recently established a London office led by Barrister Gerard Clarke, and launched Baker Regulatory Services under the leadership of Barry Faudemer, the former Director of Enforcement of the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC).

“Cayman continues to be an important offshore jurisdiction when it comes to dispute resolution, given its status as a key international finance centre," Robert Jones, Managing Director of Bakers and Partners (Cayman) Limited, said.

Stephen Baker, Senior Partner of Baker and Partners, added: “The addition of a presence in the Cayman Islands is a natural next step for our firm, which has been involved in matters across the Caribbean for many years.

"It also builds upon several important milestones this year in the strategic expansion of our firm.”
