Conyers Continues to Grow with New Attorney Hire

December 2009

Multi-jurisdictional law firm Conyers Dill & Pearman is pleased to announce the addition of Caymanian Tara Rivers as Attorney-at-Law, as the firm continues to expand its Corporate and Investment Funds presence in the Cayman Islands. Tara will practice corporate and commercial law, specialising in investment funds, securitisation and structured finance matters.

She initially attended the Triple "C" School in Grand Cayman, going on to attend the United World College of the Atlantic where she successfully completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. Tara also obtained an LLB from Osgoode Hall Law School and an MBA from the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto, Canada, and a BA (High Honours) from Brandeis University in Massachusetts, USA. She is admitted as an Attorney-at-Law in the Cayman Islands, as a barrister and solicitor in Ontario, Canada, and as an Attorney and Counselor-at-Law in the State of New York.

Prior to joining Conyers, Tara was an international capital markets associate at Allen & Overy LLP in London. During her time at the firm, Tara helped structure and execute a number of "firsts", including establishing the first UK building society residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) master trust programme and the first commercial mortgaged back securities (CMBS) covered bond programme.

Richard Finlay, managing partner of Conyers' Cayman Islands office, said: "We are delighted that Tara has agreed to join us. I have been following Tara and her career for a number of years, with a view to inviting her to join our corporate department when she decided to return to her native Cayman. She is a talented and ambitious young woman with very impressive credentials. Her professional experience, notably the years that she spent with Allen & Overy in London, will serve her well in providing responsive, timely and thorough advice to clients of Conyers Dill & Pearman in the Cayman Islands."

Conyers' Cayman Islands office was established in 2003 and has grown to encompass 60 staff including 20 attorneys, offering a full complement of corporate, litigation and private client legal advice. In addition to Cayman Islands law, Conyers also advises on the laws of the British Virgin Islands, Bermuda, Cyprus and Mauritius from 11 locations worldwide. Founded in 1928, Conyers comprises 600 staff including more than 150 lawyers.

Conyers Dill & Pearman was named Offshore Law Firm of the Year 2009 by The Lawyer.
