Pinel Advocates has continued its successful growth by the completion of a further recruitment drive, coupled with first investments for its venture capital arm, Pinel Venture Capital. Pinel Advocates will also be arranging client seminars at its London office in Autumn 2012.
Agnieszka Blaszczyk, Group Partner said “We are delighted that our recruitment drive has been a success and we will be making announcements shortly regarding the expansion of our Jersey team. We were lucky to be able to have such high calibre candidates applying and we are very confident that we can continue to deliver a high quality personal service at a competitive cost.”
Pinel Venture Capital also made its first investments and further discussions are underway for strategic partnerships with complimentary businesses that do not compete with the clients of Pinel Advocates.
Andrew Pinel, Partner of Pinel Advocates and Director of Pinel Venture Capital, added “We are very pleased with the first investments. As announced earlier this year, we have been looking to form strategic investment relationships with businesses with the same or similar client base to Pinel Advocates. Importantly, we are not competing in any way with our clients. We will be able to announce further details of Pinel Venture Capital’s first investments in our next, joint press release with our business partners.”
Pinel Advocates also announced that it would be holding a series of seminars at its London office at 133 Houndsditch. The
seminars will focus on specific Jersey products and attendees will include UK and Jersey-based clients and intermediaries from the relevant sectors.
