Quinn Gillespie lobbyists Jack Quinn and Manuel Ortiz will update their client, the Cayman Islands Financial Services Association, on their Capitol Hill efforts - over dinner in the Caymans.
The firm confirms that Quinn and Ortiz will speak at a dinner sponsored by the association on July 7. The subject is strategies to combat the islands' reputation as a haven for American tax evaders, something the association and Quinn Gillespie dispute.
"We’re going to be reporting to a group in the Cayman Islands
on our ongoing efforts to get the truth out," Quinn said, in a statement relayed through a spokesperson. The Cayman Islands, he says, are "a vital element of the
global financial marketplace, not a place to practice tax evasion."
