Conyers expands corporate practice in Cayman with partner hire


Conyers Dill & Pearman has appointed Derek Stenson as a partner in its Cayman Islands Corporate practice.

Derek has particular expertise in insurance, reinsurance and structured products. He brings with him a wealth of experience and in-depth knowledge in those areas, which complements and enhances the firm’s offering.

Pearman originally trained and worked in the insurance and capital markets practice of a Irish law firm before moving to a leading offshore firm in Cayman, where he specialised in insurance, capital markets and general corporate and finance matters.

Kevin Butler, partner & head of the Cayman Islands Office, said: “We are delighted to welcome Derek to the firm. I have known him personally for some years and his background, particularly in insurance and reinsurance, makes him a custom fit for us. We are very confident that his significant and broad expertise will help us further strengthen our position in Cayman.

Stenson said: “I am extremely excited to be joining Conyers. The firm is highly regarded and has an unrivalled reputation in my areas of focus, so joining forces was an easy decision. I’m really looking forward to working with the team and contributing to the ongoing success of the firm.”
