As reported this week in The Lawyer, Kennedys have announced a deal with Bermudian law firm Sedgwick Chudleigh. Operating as Kennedys Chudleigh they will be the first offshore firm with a presence in Bermuda. https://www.thelawyer.com/kennedys-opens-bermuda-another-sedgwick-raid/
Offshore firms Harneys and Walkers have already established a presence in the Bermuda market (albeit in association with local firms) and while Maples and Calder do not have a presence, its fiduciary business Maples FS opened its office this summer. At least one other offshore law firm that we know of is hoping to launch a Bermuda practice before the end of the year, with other firms looking seriously at the jurisdiction.
Exciting times for a well established offshore jurisdiction which looks set for significant growth.
