Leading offshore law firm, Bedell Cristin, has appointed Tim Pearce as its global managing partner from 1 September 2019, succeeding David Cadin.

Tim joined the firm in 2003 and is recognised as a leader in his field by the main legal directories. Since joining the firm, Tim has played a key role in leading some of Bedell Cristin’s highest-profile corporate finance and real estate finance transactions and has been instrumental in growing the corporate team globally.

In addition to his client work, in recent years Tim has been actively involved in helping to manage the firm.  He led the merger with Solomon Harris, which has given Bedell Cristin a significant presence in the Cayman Islands.

Tim’s appointment follows three years of growth, change and development at Bedell Cristin, following the separation from trust company, Ocorian.  This was led by David Cadin, who retains his position as Jersey managing partner.

“I’m looking forward to taking on this role and continuing the great work David has delivered over the past three years,” said Tim.

“The firm has gone from strength-to-strength under his leadership, and a strong client service and continuous improvement culture has been embedded at Bedell Cristin’s core. I aim to continue the progress David has made in establishing ourselves as a truly independent offshore law firm that clients repeatedly choose to work with.”

David Cadin added: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the last three years, and it’s gratifying to see the many improvements we’ve made as a firm.

“Tim and I will work closely to ensure his transition to global managing partner is seamless, and I have no doubt he will continue to impress with his expertise and commercial outlook to grow Bedell Cristin even further. ”
