Conyers Dill & Pearman has been ranked in the elite top tier for offshore firms globally by legal rating agency Chambers & Partners.
In the Chambers Global 2010 directory released last week, Chambers highlights Conyers’ “great global reach” and “spectacularly good reputation”. Chambers draws attention to the firm’s “overall network in a position of real authority in the global market” noting that “the Cayman offering has remained prominent” and drawing attention to Conyers’ “ability to practice Mauritius law all over the world”.
In Bermuda, Chambers ranks Conyers as the sole #1 corporate firm “at the very top of the Bermuda market”. According to the review, “peers recognise Conyers’ dominance in all sectors on the island – Conyers is way out in front”. Conyers’ BVI corporate practice also receives positive reviews for its continued growth and significant expansion and in Cayman Conyers is praised for making “great strides, building up its team with astute recruitment and strengthening its overall reputation for corporate work”.
Conyers’ dispute resolution practices also receive high rankings. In Bermuda the firm is listed as a top firm with a “strong tradition of high-quality litigation work” and industry peers interviewed by Chambers comment that Conyers is “involved in all of the big cases”. In BVI, Chambers notes that Conyers’ “presence on a high percentage of major cases has enabled the team to build a great market profile.” According to Chambers, “sources emphasise the degree of control the team gives clients in deciding how to run a case, while still maintaining a very high quality of advocacy.” In Cayman, Chambers states that “Conyers has really started to make a name for itself in litigation”.
Chambers also draws attention to the Cayman Islands funds practice, in particular its “strong team based approach”. It also commends Conyers’ Dubai office, which “regularly acts for major financial institutions”. Conyers’ private client expertise in trust work and its “trust-focused approach to private wealth management” is also highlighted by Chambers.
