Kinetic Partners’ Cayman Islands Restructuring and Corporate Recovery Group Rebranded as Duff & Phelps

Duff & Phelps, the premier global valuation and corporate finance advisor, today announced that the Cayman-based Restructuring and Corporate Recovery team at Kinetic Partners will now do business under the brand name of Duff & Phelps following its acquisition earlier this year.

In January 2015, Duff & Phelps acquired Kinetic Partners and created a dedicated Compliance and Regulatory Consulting Practice. Kinetic Partners’ full Corporate Recovery and Forensic practices also joined the firm’s network of 70 offices and more than 2,000 experienced professionals.

“Duff & Phelps is very excited about the Kinetic Partners integration and ongoing growth of our global expertise,” said Bob Bartell, Global Head of Corporate Finance for Duff & Phelps. “We offer clients broad platform capabilities at every stage of their lifecycle, and have a strong presence in all major financial centers, as well as emerging markets such as India and Brazil. Our Cayman team is an important part of that continuum and client support.”

“Our clients have experienced the best possible results of the integration,” added Mark Longbottom, a Partner at Duff & Phelps based in the Cayman Islands.  “We have maintained superior service and a strong local presence while greatly expanding the breadth of our expertise and reach. Rebranding communicates the strength of the organization behind our local team, and we are better positioned than ever to seamlessly serve both the local business community as well as our global clients.”
