Cayman firm Campbells expanded its staff headcount in 2012 from 45 to 50, and added two fee-earners. Qualified lawyer and partner numbers remained static. However, the firm did add two partners to its equity.
The firm moved to bigger premises in 2012 and has tied up with BVI firm HPA Lawyers in a bid to expand its jurisdictional reach. A number of the Campbells lawyers have been sworn into the BVI bar as a result. Campbells says it is exploring “further expansion”.
The firm has been acting for the petitioners, ARC Capital and Haida Investments, in an $880m quasi-partnership dispute; for various pension schemes, including the New Orleans Fire Fighters’ Pension & Relief Fund in winding up proceedings against the FIA Leveraged Fund; and for DPM Mellon and BNY Mellon, which are creditors in the liquidation of Sphinx Fund, with a value of $500m.
