Robert Mack, a Cayman Islands Law School graduate, has returned to Grand Cayman to work at Maples and Calder after 10 years abroad.
The Canadian national had no previous ties with the islands when he chose to attend the law school to broaden his experience in a leading offshore centre.
Mr. Mack graduated in 1997 and relocated to the Channel Islands where he completed his articles with a large UK investment bank.
Mr. Mack then practiced for seven years in London. There he gained experience in tax and trusts matters, providing legal and structuring advice to high net worth individuals and families, as well as commercial trustees and charities. He also undertook offshore and onshore tax planning for directors and entrepreneurs of various commercial ventures.
Mr. Mack’s application for admission was presented by Aristos Galatopoulos, a partner within the firm’s Litigation Department.
‘It has been an aspiration of mine to return to work in the Cayman Islands,’ Mr. Mack said. ‘Cayman is the premier offshore financial centre and Maples and Calder is the global leader in offshore law, so it is a natural fit.’
