The Legal 500 independent worldwide directory of law firms has recognised the Mourant practices in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands in its 2019 rankings, citing their “extensive multi-disciplinary and offshore legal expertise” while acting on high-profile and complex transactions and cases.
The firm’s dispute resolution practice in the Cayman Islands was praised for being “extremely responsive” with sources saying that the team “delivers solid and reliable opinions and provides good value.” Its lawyers were described as being “exceptional” with “impressive analytical and writing skills and deep knowledge and understanding of commercial law issues.”
The Cayman Corporate & Commercial, Investment Funds and Banking, Finance & Capital Markets teams received praise for response times and providing “short, practical” advice.
Cayman Islands Managing Partner, Hayden Isbister, said 2018 had been “a standout year” for the practice. “Along with a major rebrand, we’ve played a key role in many of the most high-profile deals and cases in the offshore market,” he said. “It’s great to once again see the hard work and dedication of our people recognised in this way.”
The Legal 500 ranked Cayman Islands-based attorneys Hector Robinson QC, Neal Lomax and Peter Hayden as “Leading Individuals.”
Mourant, which has its Cayman Islands office in the 94 Solaris Avenue building in Camana Bay, also has offices in Jersey, Guernsey, Hong Kong and London.
