Maples and Calder offer the combined experience of eight partners and associates working with trustees and private clients covering all major markets and time zones from offices in the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Dubai, Hong Kong, London and Singapore. An outstanding knowledge of commercial trusts adds range and flexibility to the firm's private trusts advice, and vice versa. Maples and Calder's specialist areas include unit trusts, escrow arrangements, estate planning, trustee incorporation, charities, regulatory regimes, third-party claims and dispute resolution. The firm's lawyers provide practical advice on ownership and succession planning based on decades of specialisation and experience. While its diverse litigation team can help avoid or resolve disputes, should the need arise. For private clients, family businesses, charities or trustees, Maples and Calder offer clients expert advice and realistic choices when it comes to every aspect of trusts.

There is provision in Cayman Islands law for the appointment of legal guardians for persons who lack capacity to deal with their own affairs. The procedure is laid down in the Mental Capacity Law (2013 Revision) and the Grand Court Law (2015 Revision).

A power of attorney in the Cayman Islands is not capable of surviving the incapacity of the donor of the power. The court, however, may recognise an enduring or lasting power of attorney which is made and properly takes effect in another jurisdiction.
