(CNS Local Life): Jaron Leslie, after completing his articles this summer, has joined Harneys’ litigation team as an associate. Marco Martins, Cayman managing partner, said Leslie is the fourth Caymanian to complete the firm’s professional development programme since it launched a few years ago.

“We are delighted Jaron has chosen to stay with the firm and join our growing litigation practice,” he added in a press release. “Our professional development programme continues to allow Caymanians pursuing a career in law with hands-on experience and real-time case work, and the firm with fresh, eager qualified lawyers to grow our practice areas.”

Before beginning his articles at Harneys, Leslie worked at the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority where he “gained a strong working knowledge of the local regulatory regime and techniques for auditing and inspection of financial services providers”, the release said. His career also included work as a client relationship manager for a wealth management and captive insurance service provider and as a fund fiduciary services administrator with a large financial services company in the Cayman Islands.

He was also the recipient of the Higgs & Johnson 2015 Pursuit of Excellence Scholarship.

Less than one year ago, Harneys launched a plan to grow its litigation team via a global recruitment drive. Leslie’s appointment brings the total number of lawyers in the practice group to 65.
