Jersey law practice the Sinel Group has followed the latest trend of Channel Islands firms setting up in the Caribbean by launching a practice in Anguilla.
Sinel’s new office will be managed by Alex Richardson who was an assistant at Harney Westwood & Riegels’ Anguilla office. Richardson, also president of Anguilla’s bar association, will join Sinel’s founding partner, Philip Sinel, in the firm’s partnership. “Richardson joined us because I offered him more money,” said Sinel.
Last month Channel Islands firm Ogier merged with Cayman Islands firm Boxalls.
Sinel hopes to specialise in tax work in Anguilla. Previously it has focused on litigation and in Jersey has acted in BCCI and Grupo Torras related litigation. Sinel has a London office and an association with Costa Rica firm Alvarez Jimenez de Pass.
