On Wednesday, 6 September, Grant Dixon and Stuart Foulds appeared before Mr. Justice Alex Henderson for admission as Attorneys at Law in the Cayman Islands. Their applications were sponsored by Maples and Calder and presented by Mac Imrie, a partner within the firm’s Litigation Department.
Before admitting Mr. Dixon and Mr. Foulds to the Roll of Attorneys, Justice Henderson welcomed them to the Cayman Islands and said that they both had the good fortune of joining one of the premiere firms in the Caribbean region.
Mr. Dixon joins Maples and Calder from the Melbourne office of Australian law firm Freehills, where he practised in their corporate group, specializing in superannuation and head office advisory work.
In his superannuation practice, he principally advised corporate trustees in relation to their management of both defined contribution and defined benefit superannuation funds, including both employer-related and large retail funds.
Mr. Dixon’s work with the Head Office Advisory Team at Freehills focused on capital management techniques, including share sale facilities, capital reductions and corporate group restructures. He also provided general corporate governance advice in relation to board and individual director duties.
Mr. Foulds joins the firm from Lovells in London, where he worked with the capital markets group specialising in structured finance including securitisations, repackaging and fund-linked products. While at Lovells he was seconded to Lehman Brothers International (Europe) and worked on a variety of fund-linked products and OTC derivative transactions.
His main area of expertise is in structured finance and both OTC and exchange-traded derivatives with particular emphasis on fund-linked structured transactions; he has also had involvement in a number of repackagings, securitisations and CDO transactions.
Maples and Calder is pleased to welcome Mr. Dixon and Mr. Foulds to the firm and to the jurisdiction.
