Conyers gains Chambers recognition
Conyers' Bermuda private client and trust practice has been recognised in Chambers and Partners' High Net Worth Guide 2020 with a Band 1 ranking.
Conyers said it continues to be the only firm ranked Band 1 in Bermuda for offshore trusts and is described as “the dominant firm” on the island.
One market insider noted: “You wouldn't be in operation here so long and so successfully if you were not a top-quality outfit from top to bottom.” Directors Helen Cooper, Craig MacIntyre and Peter Pearman are ranked Band 2.
“We are delighted to receive such high acclaim in this year's Chambers HNW Guide,” said Mr Pearman, director and global head of private client and trust. “It is a testament to the high level of service and dedication that we offer our clients.”
The Chambers High Net Worth guide serves as a directory for the private wealth market and is used by family offices and professional wealth advisers. The rankings and editorial draw on independent research including interviews with lawyers, family offices, accountants, tax advisers, bankers and investment managers for a comprehensive view of the private wealth sector.
The directory states that Mr Pearman acts for several high net worth clients, regularly advising families in the US as well as the rest of the world. A Bermuda adviser notes that he is “a good lawyer who really understands the practice area”.
Ms Cooper's practice covers all aspects of trust and private client law. She is described as “a well-regarded trusts and private client adviser”, with “in-depth knowledge in issues connected to trust reorganisations and private trust company structures”.
Mr MacIntyre is “highly regarded for his in-depth knowledge in offshore and international trust matters”. He acts for several wealthy clients, notably those based in the US and Europe.
