The firm was originally established in the Cayman Islands in 1978 as a partnership between James McDonald and Darryl Myers. Bryan Ashenheim and Michael Alberga joined the partnership shortly after. On James McDonald’s retirement in 1985, the firm changed its name to Myers & Alberga.
In March 2009, Darryl Myers (who remains a consultant to the firm) and Bryan Ashenheim retired from the partnership and Richard Thorp, Melanie Myers-Khouri joined the firm which was renamed Thorp Alberga.
The firm opened its Hong Kong office in 2009.
In 2012, when Anthony Travers joined as Senior Partner, the firm was renamed Travers Thorp Alberga. The firm has since expanded steadily through mergers and by attracting former heads of department and partners from major offshore law firms.
In 2014, the firm merged with long standing Cayman Islands law firm, Paget-Brown and Company and in 2015, merged with boutique British Virgin Islands law firm Orion-Law thereby acquiring a fully staffed office in Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
