Harbottle and Lewis has announced the appointment of Marcus Parker as a partner in its private capital practice, strengthening further the firm’s offshore tax, trusts and estates offering.
Parker has over 20 years’ experience in the private client industry as both a lawyer and, for the last seven years, as a professional trustee in the Cayman Islands.
His practice focuses on establishing international structures to hold and manage the global wealth of international families.
Before moving to the Cayman Islands in 2013, Parker was a founding partner of London-based boutique private client law firm New Quadrant Partners.
Parker said: “I am looking forward to working with the stellar team at Harbottle & Lewis to coordinate and orchestrate the firm’s expertise in litigation, tax, trusts and estates, reputation protection and immigration for global wealthy families.”
Glen Atchison, managing partner, Harbottle and Lewis, added: “Our practice continues to evolve to meet these needs and Marcus’ experience, particularly in developing global structures and navigating complex issues in both contentious and non-contentious offshore matters, further enhances our offering.
“His understanding and experience of the Cayman market is also hugely valuable and we are delighted to welcome him to the firm.”
