In its third year since its cross-island merger, Collas Crill continued to expand on both financial and headcount metrics. The firm reported a turnover rise in double digits and added four lawyers, with a gain of three in its partnership from internal promotions at the end of 2012. A further three partners were made up at the end of last year.
Collas Crill joined a number of its rivals in London last year, relocating consultant Edward Stone and senior associate Susan O'Leary to the City in December. Stone was promoted to the position of group partner. The aim of the launch was to strengthen relationships with clients and increase the amount of work coming from non-traditional markets into the Channel Islands. Its other office outside the Channel Islands is in Singapore.
The firm deployed a new business management system at the end of 2013, choosing one designed to provide multi-jurisdictional capabilities. This fits with Collas Crill's 'jurisdiction-blind' strategy and single profit pool.
