Tracey Forbes, recent winner of the Cayman Connection Making Waves Awards in the Financial, Legal and Professional Services category, joined the firm in 2012 as an Articled Clerk and has continued to grow from strength to strength. Tracey was admitted as an Attorney in January 2014 and made the move to the Hong Kong office later that year where she has spent the last eight years, thriving as a banking and finance lawyer and playing a significant role in the business development of the office. She will return to the Cayman office as a Counsel in November this year.

At Mourant, we are hugely committed to the professional growth of all our people, helping everyone to excel and reach their full potential.
