Collas Day expansion to encompass City, Jersey

Guernsey offshore firm Collas Day is to open a ­London office as part of a broader expansion plans.

Commercial partner Jason Romer said: “To begin with it will be a marketing outpost, with one person encouraging more interaction between the London markets and Collas Day.

“In time it will become a fee-earning office, but it’s important to note that it won’t be competing with onshore firms.”

Romer added that Collas Day, which is targeting work from emerging markets, would be looking for lawyers in London.

The firm is also considering a move into Jersey, which Romer said he considers to be “the next natural step for us to take”.
