Conyers announces relocation of Paul Smith to Cayman litigation practice
Conyers Dill & Pearman has announced that Paul Smith has relocated to the law firm’s Cayman Islands office to further support its litigation practice.
Smith, a senior addition to the Cayman litigation team, brings with him more than 30 years of dispute resolution experience, including 13 years as a prominent litigator in Conyers’ Bermuda office.
Specialising in commercial litigation, trust litigation, arbitration and insurance and reinsurance, he is internationally recognised for his expertise. Prior to joining Conyers in 2000, Smith practised at the Commercial Bar in London.
Earlier this year, Conyers’ Cayman trust litigation office welcomed Raymond Davern, who relocated to lead the private client and trust practice for both the British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands offices.
Nigel Meeson QC and Linda DaCosta complete the trust litigation team.
