Two new Caymanian articled clerks have joined the corporate department of offshore law firm Mourant. The firm now has 90 employees in Cayman.
David Ramsaran, 2018 Chantal Whittaker Memorial Scholarship recipient, recently completed his LPC at the University of Law in London with commendation. He previously graduated with first class honours in law from Oxford Brookes University.
Ramsaran also completed four consecutive summer internships with the firm. He said in a statement. “I’m excited to start work with Mourant as an articled clerk. I have really enjoyed working at Mourant during previous summer internships and I’m very grateful for their support during my studies. I look forward to developing as a lawyer with the incredible Mourant team.”
Rejonté Rivers joined Mourant in January 2015 as a corporate administrator in the firm’s governance services division. She progressed to senior corporate administrator and then to client services manager on the governance team and simultaneously completed the Graduate Diploma in Law at BPP University. She continued her studies and successfully finished the Professional Practice Course at the Truman Bodden Law School in July 2019. While completing the Professional Practice Course, Rivers transferred to the law firm as a paralegal in October 2018. She has accepted the position of articled clerk in the firm’s corporate team and is due to start this month.
“It has been a challenging and exciting three years of pursuing my legal education and working hard in my various roles,” Rivers said. “I have grown and developed so much thanks to the opportunities and support from Mourant since joining the firm almost five years ago.”
