Maples and Calder is pleased to announce another successfully completed articles of clerkship with its firm.
On 14 November 2018, before an audience of family, friends and colleagues, Ms. Lindo was admitted as an attorney-at-law in the Cayman Islands by Hon. Justice Williams. A Maples and Calder scholarship recipient, Ms Lindo attended the University of Birmingham where she received a Bachelor of Laws in 2015 and completed the Legal Practice Course with a Masters of Business and Management in 2016. She first joined Maples and Calder as a summer intern in 2013 and became an Articled Clerk in March 2017. Following her qualification, Ms. Lindo will be practising in the firm’s Finance group. An active member of the law student community, Ms. Lindo is the current Articled Clerk representative for the Cayman Islands Bar Association and is also a member of the Rising Stars local netball league team. “The opportunity to train and work with lawyers of such high calibre has been instrumental in my development and a rewarding experience,” remarked Ms Lindo. “I look forward to continuing to hone my skills to become an asset to both the Finance team and the firm overall.” Partner and global head of the Maples and Calder’s Finance practice, Mark Matthews said, “The Finance group welcomes Renee to the team. We look forward to working with Renee as she cultivates her career and know she will be a valuable resource to the team and law firm.” Maples and Calder has been committed to recruiting, training and promoting aspiring lawyers in the Cayman Islands for many years. Its scholarship programme is one of the largest and most successful on the island; consistently attracting the most outstanding students the jurisdiction has to offer and has, through its Articled Clerk scheme, enabled over 30 Caymanian lawyers to be admitted since 2005, with another five currently in training. The internationally recognised law firm supports Caymanians interested in qualifying as Cayman Islands attorneys, providing opportunities for locally and globally educated candidates.
