Mourant expands CI presence

Leading professional services group Mourant has expanded its presence in the Cayman Islands with the appointment of three additional Caymanians.

Lawyer Donald Spence, who has been appointed to Mourant’s law firm division, was called to the Bar of the Cayman Islands in 2004 and worked for Appleby Spurling Hunter and Trident Trust before joining Mourant. Donald specialises in funds, corporate, banking and capital markets work, states a press release.

Margaret Aquart joins the corporate services department of Mourant’s fast-growing international corporate and fund administration division. Margaret, who has previously worked for Royal Bank of Canada Trust Company and Maples Finance, has over 15 years’ experience in the fields of trusts, funds and capital markets, states a press release.

Rachel Bush has joined Mourant as an executive legal secretary. She has 13 years of experience in secretarial and operational support roles in the financial services industry in the Cayman Islands, having worked most recently for Maples and Calder and then for CIBC Wealth Management.

The appointments are the latest stage in Mourant’s successful extension of its services into the Cayman market, following the firm’s admission as a listing agent for the Cayman Islands Stock Exchange last April.

Commenting on the new appointments, Roisin Cater, head of Mourant’s Cayman office, said: ‘We are delighted to have attracted Donald, Margaret and Rachel to join us in growing Mourant’s brand in the Cayman Islands. They help build our Cayman capability by bringing valuable additional skills and capacity which will allow us to give even greater support to Mourant’s international network of top tier clients.
