Boutique Cayman firm Thorp Alberga has enticed three partners from offshore giants Walkers and Appleby to boost its partnership.
Linda Martin and Anne Todd, both previously at Walkers, and Matthew Stocker, formerly of Appleby, bring the number of partners at Thorp Alberga to 10.
A unifying factor among the partnership is that a majority have spent some of their careers working at Maples and Calder.
Todd said the attraction of Thorp Alberga was the chance to return to an “old-style” practice with the ability to build up personal relationships with clients.
“It’s really a true partnership which is based on friendship and trust,” she told The Lawyer.
The firm is composed mainly of partners, with only a few associates.
Thorp Alberga was formed in 2009 from a previous firm, Myers & Alberga, when partner Darryl Myers retired from full-time practice. It focuses mainly on Cayman law, although the three-partner Hong Kong office has some British Virgin Islands capability.
