Jersey Partners Fraser Robertson and David Dorgan were also ranked in the Guide, with commentators praising David as “a good man and solid on the non-contentious side,” “smart” and “good to deal with,” and Fraser as a “brilliant trusts litigator who knows his stuff” with a “stellar reputation,” adding that he is “well versed in legal matters and knows his way around big trust matters.”

Cayman Senior Associate Esmond Brown was listed as an “Associate to Watch,” with one market expert saying that he is “incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and always looking to find the best solutions for his clients,” and adding that “his written work is excellent and always delivered in a very timely manner.”

In the Guide the firm is highlighted as a “fantastic organisation” that acts as “protectors and administration advisors on trusts,” giving “consistent advice and service.”

Carlos De Serpa Pimentel, Group Head of Private Client & Trusts, commented, “We are extremely pleased to be so well recognised in the recent rankings from Chambers Global.
