Three generations of Pearman lawyers have now served as partners at Conyers Dill & Pearman, with the latest in the family line being Peter Pearman who was recently named a partner in the firm's trust and private client division.

He follows his father and grandfather into partnership at CD&P, with the latter being a founding partner.

James Eugene Pearman and his partner Nicholas Bayard Dill joined forces in 1928 to set up Conyers Dill & Pearman with Sir Reginald Conyers.

Later, Mr. James E. Pearman was to see two of his sons ? James Appleby Pearman and Richard Shafto Love Pearman ? follow him into the firm, with both joining CD&P in 1959.

A year prior, Mr. Dill's son ? known throughout the legal community simply as 'Nicky' ? signed into CD&P's ranks.

Both Pearmans and Mr. Dill went on to become partners.

Now the third generation is in place with Peter A. Pearman, son of James A. Pearman, being named partner.

He joined the firm as an Associate in the Trust & Private Client Department in November, 1996. A graduate of Buckingham University in 1994 with a First Class Honours LLB Law Degree he also obtained a BA in International Business from Eckard College Florida in 1991.He was admitted to practice in England and Wales in 1995 and in Bermuda in 1996. He is a member of Middle Temple London and the Bermuda Bar Association and the author of several articles on trust and estate planning.

Mr. Peter Pearman began his pupilage with CD&P in September 1995, joining a firm which was vastly different from the one his ancestors had built.

Having grown from a small parochial local practice, the firm today is an international full service law firm with offices around the world.
