The Firm is the result of a merger between Pollonais & Blanc, a firm of solicitors which has been in existence for over 50 years and de la Bastide & Jacelon, whose history can be traced back even further through a line of barristers’ Chambers.
The Firm offers a full range of civil work including litigation. It has a substantial local and international clientele, including banks, trust companies, public utilities, insurance companies, airlines, shipping lines and agents, companies in the oil and gas sector, contractors, accounting firms and actuaries.
The Firm is the Trinidad and Tobago member of TerraLex, and of the State Capital Group. These two networks carefully select independent law firms, and only maintain among their membership, firms which are able to respond quickly and competently to inquiries. These memberships allow the firm to be part of a globally connected legal environment.
These relationships have often facilitated the firm in accessing materials which might otherwise have been difficult to locate and also assist us in staying current with legal developments in the wider markets.This enables us to better serve our clients’ international interests through a world-wide support network of quality law firms. Through TerraLex and State Capital the Firm can ensure a swift response from prominent law firms with a special interest in international commerce and business matters in 250 major cities globally.
