Three CIFEC Interns Join HSM IP Full-Time

The HSM Group is thrilled to announce that they have recruited three of their interns from the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC) internship programme 2022-2023.

Kayleigh Bush, Phyllis Brown and Jenae Whittaker have all joined the firm as IP Administrative Assistants for the firm’s intellectual property (IP) practice. They originally joined as CIFEC interns from October 2022 through April 2023 and further completed HSM’s 2023 Summer Internship Programme.

Since HSM is a full-service law firm, each of the students gained a variety of experiences including debt collection, compliance and property law. In their roles as IP assistants, they are responsible for coordinating new trade mark / patent applications, updating client files and supporting the office actions team.

In addition to working full-time, they are interested in pursuing further education at the University College of the Cayman Islands. Jenae is studying Business Administration; Phyllis is studying Real Estate and Kayleigh plans to study Business Administration in the spring of 2024.

HSM Managing Partner, Huw Moses OBE shares: “We are pleased to have these former CIFEC students join our team. I thoroughly recommend the CIFEC internship programme to all employers on the island, especially those genuinely interested in ensuring our young Caymanians succeed when they start their chosen careers.”

HSM has partnered with the CIFEC progamme since 2012 and recently attended the CIFEC Careers Fair on 22 September 2023, where they interviewed students for the next internship programme. HSM plans to welcome at least 10 interns this month through April 2024.
