Conyers Strengthens Litigation Practice in Cayman

Conyers is delighted to welcome Bernadette Carey back to the Cayman office.

Bernadette joins the Litigation and Private Client teams as Counsel. She has extensive expertise as a litigator, appearing regularly before the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands and advising on a number of cross-border insolvency and private client disputes in her previous role at the Firm from 2008-2012.

“Demand for our litigation services continues to increase”, said Paul Smith, Partner & Head of Litigation in the Cayman Islands. “Bernadette’s knowledge and skill-set will make great impact, allowing us to service a wider audience, and build on our reputation for first-rate advisory services across our Litigation and Private Client Teams”.

After returning to Australia and New Zealand in 2012, Bernadette advised clients on a variety of general commercial litigation cases, including contractual disputes, insolvency proceedings and assisted private client and high net worth individuals in relation to a variety of contentious and non-contentious matters including trust disputes.

Kevin Butler, Partner & Head of the Cayman Islands Office added, “We are pleased to have Bernadette re-join our Cayman team. Her range of expertise and international experience will play a key role in growing our Litigation and Private Client practices”.

Over the years, Bernadette has authored numerous published articles on international developments in trusts law and has been recommended as a leading contentious trusts lawyer in previous global editions of The Legal 500. She is also a member of the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP) and an International Fellow of the American College of Trusts and Estates Counsel.
