Conyers Dill & Pearman Hires Head of the New Trust&Private Client Practice in BVI

The offshore law firm of Conyers Dill & Pearman recently hired Raymon Davern to head the new Trust & Private Client practice in the British Virgin Islands. Prior to joining the BVI office of Conyers Dill & Pearman, Mr. Davern was part of the Private Client team at one of the oldest law firms in the Cayman Islands. He has more than 10 years experience of Chancery litigation and advisory work, and another 10 he was the Lecturer in Law at King's College in London.

Raymond Davern told the press that the BVI has the potential to flourish as a jurisdiction for private clients and high net worth individuals. He spoke about the importance of the new Private Client practice, which will offer an increase in the level of choices and will be able to bring Conyers brand to private clients, as well as raise the jurisdiction's profile.

Robert Briant, Managing Partner of Conyers´ BVI office, said that the introduction of the Trust & Private Client practice in the jurisdiction extends the BVI practice of Conyers into ''a full service law firm advising on a full range of corporate, litigation and trust & private client law.”

The offshore firm has recently made a number of new hires in BVI and other countries, continuing to strategically expand through the addition of key experts.

On May 13, Conyers will host its 2nd Annual Trust Forum in London, where lawyers from BVI, Bermuda, and Cayman Islands will participate in a series of talks on multi-jurisdictional options for the international private client market.
