One year after the merger of law firms Collas Crill and Charles Adams Ritchie & Duckworth, the firm’s Cayman office has formally changed its name to Collas Crill.
As part of the strategic merger plan, the firm remained as Collas Crill in Guernsey, Jersey, Singapore and London and traded as Collas Crill & CARD in the Cayman Islands for a transitional period.
According to Collas Crill, the merger created the first law firm with offices in Singapore, the Cayman Islands, London and each of the Channel Islands.
Collas Crill Managing Partner Jason Romer said the merger formalized existing arrangements between Collas Crill and CARD for providing Cayman advice through the firm’s Singapore office, “which was something many of our clients had been asking for.”
He added, “We have since seen a significant increase in workflow between offices, including acting for a Singapore-managed Cayman Islands fund in its investment into an Australian farm land project and acting for a PRC-based tech company in the relevant aspects of its $300 million sale of assets.
“The workflow shows extremely positive signs of continuing to grow into and beyond the new year and our Singapore and Cayman offices continue to grow to meet this demand.” He said the name change is more than just a formality. “It reinforces our integral ‘one firm’ ethos, which allows our clients to benefit from the breadth and knowledge of people across the globe, and has earned us a strong reputation for complex, multi-jurisdictional matters.”
