Offshore law firm Carey Olsen has appointed Bernadette Carey to lead its trusts and private wealth practice across the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and Cayman Islands, as part of the firm’s Caribbean offices’ growth.
Ms Carey, who joins from fellow offshore law firm Conyers Dill and Pearman, has a broad private client practice advising on wealth structuring and estate planning matters. She also has experience in trust litigation, having appeared before the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands on multi-party contentious trust disputes, estate litigation, and other cross-border private client disputes.
Jarrod Farley, managing partner of Carey Olsen's Cayman Islands office, said: "Bernadette's appointment demonstrates the continued success of our Cayman Islands and BVI offices since their openings in 2012 and 2013 respectively.”
Her appointment coincides with that of Richard Munden who joined Carey Olsen's Cayman Islands office as a corporate partner earlier this month. He specialises in asset finance matters, and particularly aviation finance and joins the firm from Walkers, where he worked for ten years.
These appointments bring the total number of partners across the firm's BVI and Cayman Islands offices to 11.
