Maples and Calder’s former managing and senior partner Anthony Travers is returning to legal practice after a six-year break, joining offshore boutique Thorp Alberga.
Travers retired from Maples in 2006 after over 30 years with the firm, including a long stint as senior and managing partner.
He joins Thorp Alberga as senior partner. Current senior partner Michael Alberga is becoming managing partner, and the firm is rebranding as Travers Thorp Alberga.
During his retirement from the law, Travers has served as chair of representative body Cayman Finance. He is also currently chair of the Cayman Islands Stock Exchange.
In a statement Travers said: “My six-year non-compete with my old firm has now expired and a number of my former clients have asked me to step back in. Given macroeconomic and onshore regulatory changes, it is time for some fresh thinking in the provision of offshore legal services.”
He added that he was attracted to Thorp Alberga due to its emphasis on regulatory and financial services and also its partner-led model.
A majority of the partners at Travers Thorp Alberga have worked at Maples at some point in their career (6 October 2011).
