Conyers Receives Top-Tier Recognition by Chambers & Partners

February 2020

The Chambers Global legal directory has been released for 2020. Conyers has received top-tier recognition in a number of categories.

“We are proud once again to receive high acclaim for the level of expertise and quality of service we provide to our clients worldwide,” said Christian Luthi, Director and Chairman. “Our rankings confirm our position as a leading international law firm and the exceptional depth and talent in our teams.”

Chambers comments that Conyers “continues to be noted as an outstanding choice for transactional and contentious matters in the British Virgin Islands and Bermuda.” The directory says the Cayman Islands team “remains a solid choice for corporate and finance transactions, fund launches and disputes” and “clients also value the firm’s well-established Hong Kong team, which has an especially strong track record for capital markets matters”. The firm is “regularly mandated on high-value IPOs and debt capital markets issuances, as well as being applauded for its understanding of Bermudian regulatory insurance issues.” Clients praised the firm for its “jurisdictional expertise and understanding of complex transactions.”

Chambers & Partners has been ranking lawyers for twenty years. The publication has 170 full-time staff who review countless submissions and conduct in-depth phone interviews with lawyers and clients around the world.
