Legal 500 has released its 2019 Caribbean Guide, and partners Laura Hatfield and Ian Jamieson have been named as leading individuals. Attorney, Rob Humphries, has been named as a next generation lawyer.
Solomon Harris merged with Bedell Cristin earlier in the year, and the firm has achieved rankings in five of the Cayman categories: Real Estate, Insurance/Reinsurance, Dispute Resolution, Corporate and Commercial and Investment Funds.
As well as Laura Hatfield's ranking as a leading individual, the dispute resolution team was noted for "being particularly active in disputes involving distressed oil and gas and commodities entities; shareholder actions on valuations and mismanagement; M&A-related claims; commercial property disputes; insurance sector matters; and finance-related commercial disputes."
In the insurance/reinsurance category, attorney, Rob Humphries, was praised for being able "to provide technical legal advice and guidance in critical circumstances and under extreme time pressure". The team was described as having "great experience of insurance business and leaves clients extremely satisfied with all its levels of service, particularly in responding to urgent queries."
In the Real Estate team, leading lawyer, Ian Jamieson, was described as "responsive, sensible and pragmatic in his advice as well as being very strong on industry knowledge". His team has acted in the two highest value hotel deals on the Seven Mile Beach corridor in the last 12 months.
Sophia Harris, managing partner of Solomon Harris, said: "Our 30-strong Cayman team works hard to give each of our clients high quality, personal service. We are delighted to have been recognised by Legal 500 in the Caribbean guide for the work we do."
