Intertrust Group has created a global offshore law firm managed from the Cayman Islands.
Intertrust Law will provide Cayman Islands legal advice covering the practice areas of investment funds, corporate and fund finance, structured finance, litigation and private clients with business development teams based globally.
The expansion into legal advice aims to strengthen Intertrust’s market position in the region.
Intertrust Law will be a Cayman Islands general partnership led by managing partner Ian Gobin and operated and managed independently from Intertrust Group.
Stephanie Miller, chief executive of Intertrust, said: “Adding legal advice to our service portfolio further strengthens our position in this strategically important market.
“We have already built a leading market position in this region and, with Intertrust Law, we can now offer an even more holistic solution to our clients to help them invest, grow and thrive.”
James Ferguson, head of Americas at Intertrust Group, added: “We always strive to meet the evolving needs of our clients and there is clear demand for a service provider who can combine legal advice in all the major fund jurisdictions around the world with the specialist suite of complementary services offered by our fiduciary and fund services teams.”
Intertrust has offices in over 30 countries and more than 3,800 staff.
