Ramparts Opens Manchester Office
We are delighted to announce that Ramparts’ Manchester office opened in April 2015.
The opening of a UK office enables us to:
- Provide additional support for our existing clients and partners who do business involving the UK.-
- Develop new client and business partner relationships in the UK.
- Promote the UK and Gibraltar as European business centres of excellence and integrity to attract potential investors and clients looking to develop business in the EU.
We believe that having teams on the ground in multiple jurisdictions will help our clients and contribute to Ramparts’ expansion as a European firm. It will also bring benefits and added beneficial exposure to the Rock. The UK was the obvious first choice for our European expansion strategy given the political, legal and historic closeness between Gibraltar and the UK.
Peter Howitt, founder and Director of Ramparts stated:
“Having a UK presence is important to us given how much cross-border legal work we already do in Europe and the UK. In addition the UK represents a great opportunity for us to support and grow our business and team. Manchester has a proud commercial history and is undergoing a period of significant business expansion, it is also becoming a second UK centre for innovative e-commerce companies including new FinTech businesses. Manchester makes sense for us and as with Gibraltar, we will work to ensure that we can be part of the continued success of Manchester. ”
Ramparts is a European law firm based in Gibraltar and in the UK. We specialise in UK, Gibraltar and EU wide legal and regulatory issues. Ramparts provides support for clients in the financial services (e-money, finance and funds), electronic commerce (including payments and e-gambling) and technology sectors. Our clients include individual entrepreneurs, early stage innovation companies and publicly listed multi-nationals.
We have also recently opened a private client practice to support wealthy individuals and families with their personal wealth management matters.
