Legal Week has identified Cayman Islands Trusts & Private Client lawyer, Maxine Bodden, as a "Rising Star" in its Private Client Global Elite Directory 2019. An associate at Maples and Calder, the Maples Group's law firm, Maxine specialises in advising leading banks, trust companies and private individuals on the establishment and ongoing administration of Cayman Islands trusts, including unit trusts, pension and employee benefit trusts and charitable trusts.
The prestigious directory identifies the premier trusts and private client lawyers around the world and has recognised members of the Maples Group since the directory re-launched in 2017, including partner and head of the law firm's Trusts & Private Client team, Morven McMillan, who was honoured in 2017, 2018 and 2019. This continued inclusion endorses the Group's ability to provide unmatched legal advice within the industry.
"I am delighted to have been included in such an esteemed publication that recognises some of the world's highly regarded trusts and private client professionals," commented Maxine Bodden. "I want to extend congratulations to all nominees on this great achievement."
Maxine is the Chair of the STEP Council and a member of the Legislative Sub-Committee of STEP in the Cayman Islands and of the Caribbean and Latin America Regional Committee of STEP. She is also Chair of the Public Policy Committee of the Caribbean and Latin America Regional Committee of STEP.
Maxine's inclusion in Private Client Global Elite also follows closely behind her recent recognition as an "Associate to Watch" in Chambers High Net Worth Guide.
