19 Aug 2020

Maples and Calder, the Maples Group's law firm, is delighted to announce that it has once again been included in the latest edition of the Chambers High Net Worth Guide marking the firm's fifth consecutive inclusion since the guide's launch in 2016.  Described as "one of the biggest names" in the private client and trust industry, the firm was one of only two firms with offices in the Cayman Islands to receive a Band One ranking along with the most individuals ranked for the jurisdiction.

The continuous recognition highlights the strength of the firm's expertise in the private wealth and international trusts industry with sources describing the firm as having "a lot of clout in the Caribbean" and "a standout firm".

The firm maintained its Band One ranking while Partners, Morven McMillan, Ray Davern and Of Counsel, Maxine Bodden continued to be placed in leading positions. A welcome new addition in this year's guide was Associate, Alex Way who was recognised in the Foreign Experts Based Abroad category.

Morven McMillan, Partner and head of the Trusts & Private Client team in the Cayman Islands retained her ranking as a Leading Individual within Band One.  Lauded by one source as "a top name in the market who commands great respect" while a legal expert added "she is incredibly established" and "she is the absolute standout.

London-based Partner, Ray Davern continues to be ranked as a Foreign Expert Based Abroad. One market insider remarked, "you can really tell he is a top-level barrister by background as he has excellent technical knowledge and is always very up to date on developments around the world" with a wealth adviser confirming "he has terrific legal knowledge."

Of Counsel, Maxine Bodden was ranked as an Up-and-Coming Individual where she was praised as "one of those lawyers who keeps on top of things and nothing gets past her" while others noted that she "is exclusively private client and has lots of experience in pure trust work. She is creative when it comes to structuring and trust formation."

London-based Associate, Alex Way is a well-deserved new addition to the Foreign Experts Based Abroad category. Market insiders commended him as "very switched on, on the ball and very good technically as well" and that "he is a real up-and-coming figure and makes a good team with Ray, but is also very good in his own right."

Chambers High Net Worth ranks top lawyers and law firms for international private wealth. The guide covers private wealth management work and related specialism in key jurisdictions around the world, featuring in-depth editorial about the leading professional advisers to wealthy individuals and families in each market.
