Mourant appoints funds partner in the Cayman Islands


Offshore law firm Mourant du Feu & Jeune has appointed James Wauchope as an equity partner in the Cayman Islands.

Wauchope (pictured) specialises in all areas of offshore finance and corporate work, with a particular focus on investment funds.

He worked at the City office of Simmons & Simmons before moving to the Cayman Islands in 1993 and was a partner at Maples and Calder before joining Mourant.

Neal Lomax, head of Mourant du Feu & Jeune’s Cayman Islands office, says: “We are delighted to welcome James to the partnership. Hiring talented lawyers who can contribute to the success of Mourant du Feu & Jeune in the Cayman Islands is a key part of the future growth strategy of the firm. I look forward to working closely with James on the development of our Cayman investment funds practice."

Wauchope adds: “The profile of Mourant du Feu & Jeune’s Cayman Islands office has greatly increased over recent years as has the presence and reputation of its Cayman investment funds group. I am very excited to be joining such a strong legal team and look forward to working with so many high calibre lawyers in further developing the Cayman Islands practice.”
