Barton bagged in Cayman
Conyers Dill & Pearman has recruited Richard Barton as an associate in its growing Cayman Islands litigation department. He joins from the Attorney General’s Chambers, where he previously held the position of Crown Counsel.
Barton (left) read law at the Cayman Islands Law School and graduated with honours from the University of Liverpool in 2002. In 2005, he received a Post Graduate Diploma in Professional Legal Skills from Inns of Court School of Law in England, having completed the Bar Vocational Course. He is a member of the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn and the Cayman Islands Bar Association.
Nigel Meeson QC, head of the litigation department in the Cayman office, said: “His addition is timely in this period of financial turmoil. Our litigation team has doubled in size in just over a year and his experience positions us to build significantly on our existing litigation expertise. He is an example of Conyers Dill & Pearman’s continued commitment to the training and development of young Caymanians.”
Commenting on his appointment, Barton said: “I am impressed with the continued growth of Conyers Dill & Pearman, and by its ethos of quality and professional service with a friendly approach. I look forward to building on my experience further.”
2008 has proved a very busy year for Conyers Dill & Pearman, which has made several key hires as well as launching new offices and services globally and is preparing for a number of further international office launches in line with its strategy of organic global growth.
