The partners of offshore law firm Bedell Cristin have completed their merger with long established Cayman based law firm, Solomon Harris.
First announced in July this year, the merger will allow Bedell Cristin to broaden its range of legal services to include Cayman legal advice and to extend its international presence through the Solomon Harris office in Cayman.
Solomon Harris' team of Cayman lawyers will advise Bedell Cristin's international clients, particularly those based in the Middle East and Far East where Cayman structures are particularly popular.
The Solomon Harris name is retained for the present, though the intention is for the firm to rebrand as Bedell Cristin at a later date.
David Cadin, managing partner, Bedell Cristin, commented: "We are delighted to have finalised the merger with our colleagues at Solomon Harris as planned. We are in the process of fully integrating the two businesses, and we will invest in our Cayman office to further strengthen the offering. I am excited about the benefits this merger will bring to our clients."
Founded in 1958, Bedell Cristin has presences in BVI, Guernsey, Jersey, London, Singapore and the Cayman Islands.
