15 November 2021
The Legal 500 Caribbean 2022 edition has been published and we are pleased to report very encouraging results for our team in the Cayman Islands.
We now rank in 6 of the 8 practice areas, maintaining tier 2 position in Real Estate and Trusts/private client and tier 3 position in Dispute Resolution. We have moved up a tier in Banking, finance and capital markets (tier 4), Corporate and commercial (tier 4) and joined the Investment Funds rankings for the first time (tier 5). This is a reflection of the investment we are making to grow our team and service offering in the Cayman Islands.
In the 2022 directory we have once again received excellent feedback from clients and intermediaries.
Partner Ian Jamieson has been ranked as a 'Leading Individual' in Real Estate and is highly praised for being "one of the most hard-working, approachable and helpful individuals in this space. He's also exceptionally knowledgeable and a great problem solver."
Michael Sharvin enjoys a new ranking of 'Rising Star' in Real Estate. One referrer said, "Michael Sharvin complements Ian Jamieson very well and, while having only been in the jurisdiction for a relatively short period, has already established himself as a very competent practitioner."
Other ranked lawyers are Laura Hatfield, Partner, as a 'Leading Individual' in Dispute Resolution and Fraser Allister, Managing Associate, as a 'Rising Star' in Trusts/Private Client. Laura and Fraser also receive high praise:
- "A solid dispute resolution team, ably led by Laura Hatfield."
- "Fraser Allister is one of very few experienced and commercial lawyers in the sector – one to watch as he has just joined the team."
Tim Pearce, Global Managing Partner, Bedell Cristin, welcomed the latest rankings. He commented: "I am thrilled with the recognition the team in the Cayman Islands has received and especially for Michael and his 'Rising Star' accolade. I am particularly proud of the exceptional feedback they've received in this new edition which consistently praises them for their responsiveness, professionalism and high levels of service that they provide to clients. I have every confidence that they will continue to go from strength to strength."
