The importance of due diligence in investment migration
Can you give us an overview of your law firm’s move into the citizenship by investment (CBI) sector?
GD: We began our investment migration program in 2016 on the idea that our firm could cater to the additional needs of our existing clients and referrals from our extensive international network. One year ago, we made a conscious strategic decision to grow this part of our business. We are currently investing resources in market analysis and creating and improving our standards of practice. We are trying to understand the industry in its entirety–not just the Saint Lucia offerings. We have deep contacts and believe we can influence the trends of global investment migration. Over the last few years, we have been consistently ranked by Chambers and Partners. Their rankings are based on feedback from clients and peers, which speaks volumes about where we stand in the local and international legal fraternity.
KI: We would like to become more of a player in the industry and a gatekeeper of our patrimony. Investment migration is a lot more than simply handing someone a passport. It is about working with these people to ensure long-term planning. Getting a passport is just the beginning of the journey, and as a commercial and corporate law firm, we are well placed to assist them. We have had a 100-percent success rate on applications submitted since 2016.
