Conyers Dill & Pearman's 'excellent' practice has 'a number of talented practitioners'; the 'thorough, experienced and responsive team' has a long-established reputation for advising ultra-high-net-worth clients on family trust structures, including the original structure design and ongoing administration as well as restructuring issues in response to changing tax or family circumstances. Global private client and trust head Alec Anderson advises on succession planning for family businesses, the creation of private trust companies, restructuring trusts to resolve family and regulatory issues, and the protection of family wealth from divorce and other litigation; the 'courteous, responsive and wise' Anderson is 'at the very top of his game, and a pleasure to work with'. The other recommended directors are the 'extremely helpful and energetic' Craig Macintyre; Helen Cooper, who is 'very diligent and manages the whole process with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of output'; Peter Pearman; and Karen Corless. Stephanie Bernard, Nicola Bruce and Anna Bruce-Smith are notable associates.
