Top lawyers named on Citywealth list

Three senior staff at law firm Conyers Dill & Pearman have been recognised on an annual leaders list.

And Estera group director Rory Gorman has been recognised on the same list, with a place on the Trustees Honours List.

Alec Anderson, global head of private client & trust and directors Helen Cooper and Craig MacIntyre have all been honoured with spots on the Citywealth Leaders List, compiled by leading figures in wealth management and private client work.

Mr Anderson said: “We take great pride in offering a high level of service and support to our international clientele and are pleased to see this recognition from our peers as it affirms our leadership position in the sector.”

The list also included three other practitioners from CDP offices in Hong Kong, the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands.

A spokesman for the firm said: Conyers has one of the largest and most experienced international offshore private client and trust practices in the world.

“Through our global network of offices and close relationships with leading onshore tax and legal advisers, Conyers serves a diverse international group of clients.

“These include ultra high net worth business owners, family-owned businesses, entrepreneurs, charitable entities, professional trustees and their onshore legal advisers.”

Three of Mr Gorman's colleagues in Jersey and the Isle of Man are also on this year's Leaders List.

Estera CEO Farah Ballands has been recognised as a power woman and one of the top 20 women in the private wealth sector on the Leaders List.

Isle of Man-based managing partner Sean Dowling and Jersey-based group director Richard Prosser have each been named as prominent industry figures, and recognised for their expertise within the trustee field.

Mr Gorman said: “It's an honour to be listed alongside several of my colleagues in the Citywealth Leaders List.

“This recognition is testament to the level of service we provide our clients every day in all jurisdictions in which we operate.”
