Conyers Dill & Pearman is pleased to welcome Raymond Davern, a senior practitioner in the field of trusts and private client work, to its Cayman Islands office where he will lead the Private Client & Trust practice for both the British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands offices. Raymond joined Conyers in 2010 and held the position of Head of the BVI Private Client practice before expanding his role.
“We are delighted for Raymond to take on this new role overseeing the BVI and Cayman Islands Private Client & Trust practices,” said Alec Anderson, Conyers’ Global Head of Private Client & Trust. “His extensive experience in both jurisdictions will greatly benefit our clients.”
Raymond has a deep knowledge of trust law after spending many years as a Lecturer in law at Kings College London and in practice at the Chancery Bar. He regularly works with leading onshore legal and accounting firms in the US, UK, Europe, Latin America, MENA Region and Southeast Asia to establish and advise on trust and related structures for ultra high net worth individuals and their families in succession, estate planning and asset protection contexts. He also undertakes specialist trust litigation in both the BVI and Cayman at first instance and appellate levels (often involving Asian clients), regularly appearing as an advocate.
Conyers has one of the largest and most experienced private client and trust practices in the offshore world. Specialising in both contentious and non-contentious work, the Firm advises clients and onshore attorneys on the laws of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands and Mauritius.
