Cayman Islands law firms to merge
Published on December 20, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

By Caribbean News Now contributor

GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands -- Two of the leading law firms in the Cayman Islands have agreed to merge early in the New Year.

Travers Thorp Alberga and Paget-Brown will continue as Travers Thorp Alberga with Ian Paget-Brown QC assuming the role of counsel in the new company.

Paget-Brown said: “The growth of my practice over the last 40 years has been a source of immense pride to me but I feel the time is now right for my clients to benefit from the specialised legal expertise available at Travers Thorp Alberga.

“I would like to express my gratitude for the loyalty of my clients over many years and their unqualified support for this merger. I will, of course, continue to be available to them in my new role as counsel.”

Tony Travers, senior partner at Travers Thorp Alberga, said: “Ian and I have been legal colleagues in Cayman for well over 30 years and have developed a tremendous amount of respect for each other.

“As law firm mergers go, this is a perfect match and a natural progression.”

The managing partner of Travers Thorp Alberga, Michael Alberga, was in the news earlier this year when financial newsletter OffshoreAlert accused him and his firm of “breathtakingly brazen attempts to conceal information about a client who was fleeing scandal and substantial debts in the US.”

According to OffshoreAlert, Alberga refused and ignored many requests for a shareholders register that, by law, should have been made available the day it was requested.

When the document was finally produced, OffshoreAlert claimed it was falsified but nevertheless certified by Alberga as a "true and correct copy of the original".
