Walkers Expands Global Private Capital & Trusts Team

Walkers is pleased to announce that leading trusts lawyer, David Pytches, has re-joined the Cayman Islands office as a partner in the global Private Capital & Trusts group. 

David, who practised at Walkers from 2005 to 2008, brings nearly twenty years' experience in wealth and succession planning and has worked in the Cayman Islands, Jersey and the Isle of Man. David's market leading experience further strengthens Walkers' top tier Private Capital & Trusts group which offers innovative, pragmatic and effective solutions for private and institutional clients. .

Regularly ranked in Chambers and Partners and Legal 500, David is described by clients as "very easy to work with and comes up with strong solutions." Clients add that David's "transactions go seamlessly." Prior to re-joining Walkers, David led the Private Client and Trust practice at another offshore law firm and acted as in-house counsel to Standard Bank's Wealth Investment Group in Jersey.

David advises institutional trustees and private clients on all aspects of Cayman and BVI wealth structuring, including the formation, administration and restructuring of trusts and foundations, charitable and philanthropic ventures, and wills and succession planning. He advises trustees on the exercise of their powers and assists them with complex decision making.

Cayman Managing Partner, Tim Buckley commented, "David not only brings a high-profile practice to our Private Capital & Trusts group, but adds to the breadth and depth of the firm's legal service offerings. We are delighted to have David re-join our firm."

Walkers’ Private Capital & Trusts group has substantial experience working with high and ultra-high net worth individuals, their advisers, family offices and fiduciaries, private banks and leading financial institutions globally.
