Two Caymanians recently joined the offshore law firm Mourant as articled clerks.
The addition of David Ramsaran and Rejonté Rivers, who will both work in Mourant’s corporate department, brings the number of employees at the firm’s offices in Camana Bay to 90.
Ramsaran, the 2018 Chantal Whittaker Memorial Scholarship recipient, recently completed his legal practice course at the University of Law in London. Prior to that, he graduated with first-class honours in law from Oxford Brookes University. He is no stranger to Mourant’s offices, having completed four consecutive summer internships with the firm.
“I have really enjoyed working at Mourant during previous summer internships and I’m very grateful for their support during my studies,” he said. “I look forward to developing as a lawyer with the incredible Mourant team.”
Rivers originally joined Mourant’s corporate services arm in January 2015 as a corporate administrator. She progressed to senior corporate administrator and then to client services manager on the governance team, while simultaneously working toward a graduate diploma in law at BPP University. Upon completion of that diploma in July 2018, she continued her studies and successfully finished the professional practice course at the Truman Bodden Law School in July 2019. While completing that course, Rivers transferred to the law firm as a paralegal in October 2018.
“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.”
Hayden Isbister, managing partner of the Cayman Islands office, welcomed the two new articled clerks to the firm.
“We’re committed to nurturing and developing our people to be the best they can be and pleased to have previously supported them both on our student programmes,” he said. “I look forward to seeing David and Rejonté continue to grow their careers in the firm and wish them every success in their new roles.”
