Conyers is pleased to announce that Sara Collins has been awarded the 2011 International Law Office (ILO) Client Choice Award for Litigation in the Cayman Islands.
Sara was selected based on a survey of General Counsel at well known financial and other institutions, including feedback on quality of legal advice, response time, and business acumen. The ILO Client Choice Awards are presented annually to lawyers based on nominations by corporate counsel. This year’s winners were chosen from over 2,000 nominations worldwide.
Sara is widely regarded as one of the leading dispute resolution lawyers in the Cayman Islands with over 15 years’ experience as a litigation and contentious trusts practitioner in the jurisdiction. She is recognized by industry rating agency Chambers and Partners as “one of the pre-eminent trust litigators on the island” and “in a class of her own”.
Sara has been involved in many leading Cayman Islands cases including authorities on the application of the rule in Hastings Bass, the nature of the powers of a Protector of a trust, the Court’s inherent jurisdiction to supervise trusts and its statutory jurisdiction to vary trusts. She has also been involved as an expert witness in cases in New York, the Bahamas, London and Singapore.
Richard Finlay, Managing Partner of Conyers’ Cayman Islands office, commented: “As Conyers continues to grow our market share in Cayman, we remain committed to providing clients with the highest quality responsive, timely and thorough legal advice. We are delighted to receive positive feedback to this end from the industry, and commend Sara on her legal expertise and continued dedication to providing excellent client service.”
Since opening in 2003, Conyers has grown to have a considerable presence in the Cayman Islands, advising on corporate finance, investment funds, trust & private client and litigation transactions. The firm launched its Trust & Private Client Practice in the Cayman Islands last year, hiring Sara Collins to head up the new group.
