Maples and Calder Partners Ranked in Chambers High Net Worth
In the first edition of Chambers High Net Worth, Maples and Calder partners, Nigel Porteous, Morven McMillan and Ray Davern, have ranked in Offshore Trusts in the Cayman Islands, with the firm also staking its claim in the rankings. Ray also was ranked in Expertise Based Abroad for Offshore Trusts in the British Virgin Islands. These rankings are a further testament to the continued strengthening of the firm's market leading trusts and private client team.
Nigel is co-head of Maples and Calder's Cayman Islands trusts practice. "Nigel is terrific," said one interviewee, "he gives great advice, he's very thoughtful and understands our business."
Cayman Islands co-head, Morven, joined the firm in January 2016. "Her contentious lens on non-contentious work is very valuable for ultra-high net worth situations," commented one fellow attorney in the industry.
Ray was recruited to the firm's London office in June 2016. Recognised as one of the top 20 men in Private Wealth Management by Citywealth, Ray is described as, "…a real star in the offshore trust world. Brilliant intellectually, but commercial and practical with it. His knowledge of trust law is second to none and is put to formidable use in the service of his clients."
These rankings highlight Maples and Calder's strength in depth at the cutting edge of the offshore trusts industry.
