Bedell Cristin opens office in Singapore

RELATED TOPICS​

Bedell Cristin has opened an office in Singapore to provide BVI legal services.



Bedell Cristin (Singapore) will be headed by Stephen Adams (pictured), an experienced BVI lawyer.

Formerly the principal at BVI firm Barker Adams, Adams joined Bedell Cristin at the beginning of this year. He has over 15 years’ experience in corporate, banking, funds and investment funds work and has worked extensively in BVI, Hong Kong and Canada.

Richard Gerwat, managing partner at Bedell, says: “The opening of the office in Singapore is a logical move designed to augment our global reach and range of high quality legal services to our international client base, particularly those in the Asian region. There is a significant global demand for BVI legal services from our clients and it is important we not only respond to that need, but also that we provide the level of experience and client service that our clients have come to expect, and deliver it where they need it, hence the key appointment of Stephen to head the new Singapore office.”

Bedell Cristin in Singapore will offer a range of BVI corporate legal services including mainstream corporate finance work, joint ventures, listings, banking, capital markets, IPOs and sale and purchase transactions. It will combine local knowledge of the region with the wider expertise and resources of Bedell.

In addition to the new Singapore office, the firm provides Channel Islands, BVI and Mauritian legal advice, with a strong emphasis on cross border international finance, from offices in Jersey, Guernsey, London, BVI and Mauritius.

Bedell retains its office in Tortola, BVI, which it opened last year, and will continue to maintain a BVI legal team also at its Jersey headquarters where partners Simon Pascoe and Alasdair Hunter are based.
