Conyers strengthens Cayman practice with senior partner move


Conyers Dill & Pearman director Alan Dickson, who has led its Singapore office for the past five years, has moved to the Cayman Islands office.

As a senior partner with extensive global experience, Dickson will continue to focus on mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, private equity, investment funds and banking and finance work. He remains dedicated to serving both existing and new clients across diverse industries including aircraft, insurance, technology and pharmaceuticals.

Christian Luthi, chairman of the firm, said: “I want to thank Alan for his years of service in Singapore, where he built a thriving practice. His move to Cayman will bolster the Cayman corporate practice and leverage our ability to provide a seamless service for our clients across the globe.”

Kevin Butler, director and head of the Cayman Office, said: “We are delighted to have Alan join our Cayman Islands team. His breadth and depth of experience will further enhance our ability to provide a first-class offering to our corporate clients. His knowledge of the Asian market will be particularly valuable, as we serve many clients in the region.”

Director Preetha Pillai has taken over as head of Singapore office. Preetha has been with Conyers since 2006 and was promoted to Director in 2014. Her areas of practice include corporate and securities work involving Bermuda, Cayman and BVI law. She is also part of the firm’s funds team, assisting clients with setting up and restructuring mutual and private equity funds, fund management and licensing/exemption applications under the relevant securities regulations for financial intermediaries, and advising on compliance requirements.

“I am confident that under Preetha’s leadership Conyers’ Singapore office will continue to build on its strong presence in the ASEAN region,” said Luthi. “We wish her all the best in her new role.”
