Name change for law firm

Following a merger and some time for regrouping, one of Cayman’s well-established law firms is changing its name.

Higgs Johnson Truman Bodden & Co will officially become Higgs & Johnson and H&J Trulaw Corporate Services Ltd. will become H&J Corporate Services (Cayman) Ltd. commencing 1 January 2010.

The change comes after Truman Bodden & Company changed its name in January 2009 to become Higgs Johnson Truman Bodden & Co following its merger with the Bahamian law firm of Higgs & Johnson.

Truman Bodden & Company was founded in 1974 by Truman Bodden, a well-known and distinguished citizen of the Cayman Islands and former Leader of Government Business. Mr. Bodden will remain a consultant for Higgs & Johnson, as he has been since the merger.

Higgs & Johnson was established in 1948 and has been a leading, well-established law firm in the Bahamas for over 60 years. Both firms are founding members of TerraLex, a worldwide network of 158 quality law firms represented in 98 countries.

Higgs & Johnson’s objective, in the Cayman Islands as well as in the Bahamas, is to remain at the forefront of the legal profession, providing clients with innovative, quality and pro-active service. Higgs & Johnson looks forward to its expansion and looks forward to strengthening the relationships it has cultivated throughout the years with both local and international clients and associates.
