Business in Brief: Honor for Maples and Calder partner

Maples and Calder partner Morven McMillan has been awarded a nomination in Legal Week’s Private Client Global Elite 2017.

The list aims to highlight the premier trusts and private client lawyers around the world.

Private Client Global Elite 2017 received more than 4,000 submissions across 19 jurisdictions, but only the top 5 percent, as identified by peers and the ALM editorial board, were included on the list, a press release states. Submissions were evaluated by the number of nominations from peers, practitioner depth and breadth of experience, their international work and number and quality of international nominations outside the entrant’s home jurisdiction.

“I am honored to have received this recognition from my peers in the industry,” said Ms. McMillan, “and I extend my congratulations to my fellow recipients. I am particularly pleased to see a number of my colleagues from the Cayman Islands nominated, which is a credit to our continuing success in the international arena.”

Ms. McMillan joined Maples and Calder in 2016 and is head of the firm’s Cayman Islands Trusts and Private Client practice.
