Law firm Bedell Cristin has announced plans to merge with the Cayman-based firm, Solomon Harris.
It is hoped that the deal will complete by the end of August and Solomon Harris will rebrand as Bedell Cristin at a later date.
Founded in 1998, Solomon Harris is a full service law firm employing 28 people in Grand Cayman. It has been recognised for its legal expertise across a broad range of services including captive insurance and investment funds, capital markets, inward/local investment, private client services, corporate/residential real estate, immigration, litigation and insolvency & restructuring.
Welcoming the agreement, David Cadin, Global Managing Partner at Bedell Cristin, said:
"The merger with Solomon Harris is an exciting, strategic move which extends our global footprint into another leading offshore jurisdiction. Solomon Harris has developed a reputation over 20 years as a top quality legal practice in Cayman, and we are delighted to have agreed terms to join forces with them.
"The ability to provide Cayman legal advice from an experienced team of Cayman based lawyers enhances the capabilities of our firm globally and will be particularly beneficial to our clients in the Far East and Middle East, many of whom access our services through our office in Singapore."
Sophia Harris, founding Partner at Solomon Harris, commented:
"This move is a natural development in the growth of our business as we expand our horizons into new markets. Our common areas of focus, the strength of experience from Bedell Cristin and their presence in a range of leading jurisdictions, makes them an excellent fit, broadening the range of expertise available to our clients."
