Offshore law firm Collas Crill has finalised its merger with BVI firm Farara Kerins, extending the client offering of both firms.
Run by a dedicated and professional management team from Collas Crill, the official announcement sees the firm expand on its global presence alongside its Singapore, Cayman Islands, London, Guernsey and Jersey offices.
The firm will remain as Collas Crill in its current jurisdictions and trade as Collas Crill-Farara Kerins for a transitional period in the BVI.
The firm's BVI offering will include dispute resolution, including cross border commercial and insolvency litigation and international arbitration, funds and corporate work.
Collas Crill Group Managing Partner, Jason Romer, said: “The last few years have been an exciting time for us, full of growth and prosperity, and 2017 marks the continuation of this.
"Our BVI merger was a direct response to our clients' needs, extending both our Caribbean and global presence. Thanks to the expertise within Farara Kerins as well as the recent appointment of BVI lawyer Stephen Adams in our Singapore office we are able to hit the ground running immediately, providing a seamless offering across all our jurisdictions."
Gerard St. C. Farara, QC, Senior Partner at Collas Crill-Farara Kerins, said: "This merger represents a strategic move for our firm to build on our excellent reputation and the foundations Collas Crill has made through its other offices.
"Together we will be able to build on the first-class service we already offer clients giving access to new and exciting markets and will raise awareness of our services in international legal markets."
This merger comes after Collas Crill's successful opening of its Singapore office in 2011 and the firm's merger with Charles Adams Ritchie & Duckworth (CARD) in the Cayman Islands two years ago.
