Collas Crill’s first articled clerk since its merger with CARD (Charles Adams Ritchie & Duckworth) in 2015 in Grand Cayman, Jared Awe, has been admitted as an Attorney at Law following the successful completion of his 18-month training programme.
The firm’s Articles of Clerkship programme is designed to develop the legal practice and professional skills of aspiring lawyers in the region.
Under the guidance of the training principal, articled clerks gain both contentious and non-contentious experience across commercial and corporate law, investment funds and dispute resolution, whilst also getting exposure to other departments such as fiduciary and property.
Jared joined Collas Crill as the firm's first articled clerk in November 2017. Supported by Partners and Senior Associates, he gained a wealth of 'hands on' experience and direct client contact during the programme.
Following extensive training, including a month-long judicial clerkship shadowing local judges and magistrates, he qualified into the corporate, finance and funds team as an associate in June 2019.
Jared said: “Training and developing my skills at Collas Crill was a great opportunity and I valued the ability to interact with different departments in all aspects of a matter.
"I now look forward to further developing within the firm as an Associate in the corporate, finance and funds department."
Cayman Managing Partner Alan de Saram said: "Jared's admittance as attorney is a brilliant achievement both for him personally, and Collas Crill as a firm. It is a good example of how the firm encourages collaborative working and investment in our staff as we continue to grow in strength and size."
