The partners of Solomon Harris successfully completed their merger with globally recognised offshore law firm, Bedell Cristin, on 12 October 2018.
First announced in July, the merger enables Solomon Harris to expand its reach into other international markets including the Middle East and the Far East, where Cayman legal structures are particularly popular. It also allows the firm to provide more global banking & finance, corporate & commercial, investment funds, insurance and litigation services through the offices in the BVI, Guernsey, Jersey, London and Singapore. In addition to extending its global reach, the firm will continue to focus on its local Cayman practice including real estate, banking, immigration and local corporate services.
Sophia Harris, Managing Partner of Solomon Harris, is looking forward to the next chapter for the successful firm she founded over 20 years ago. 'We are delighted to be taking our services to the next level by expanding our global footprint. Our clients and our employees are excited about the merger and the benefits that it will offer.'
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.
