Maples and Calder has added to its international Trusts and Private Client practice with the appointment of Ray Davern, who joins ton 6 June 2016 as a partner in the firm’s London office.  

Davern brings with him over 25 years' experience in the trusts field, and previously headed up the Private Client and Trust practices in both the British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands for Conyers Dill & Pearman.

"We are delighted to welcome Ray to our growing London office of 8 partners and 22 fee earners.  I have every confidence that Ray's technical expertise and his time on the ground in the Cayman Islands and BVI will help cement the Maples group's position as a major player in the trusts and private client sector," says Paul Govier, Managing Partner of Maples and Calder's London office.

Ray, who has moved from the Cayman Islands to London to take up his new role, says: "I am very excited to be joining the Maples and Calder partnership and am looking forward to helping the team go from strength to strength."

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."

Ray's arrival follows other recent significant additions to Maples and Calder's global Trusts and Private Client team, including partner Morven McMillan who joined the firm in January 2016 as co-head of the practice in the Cayman Islands office, alongside Nigel Porteous.

Maples and Calder's Trusts and Private Client practice has established itself as a market leader, acting for some of the world's largest private businesses, high profile international families and institutional clients.  Maples and Calder advises on the laws of the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands and Ireland in trusts and private client matters, and clients benefit from the combined expertise of a global team, which provides advice from offices that cover all major markets.
