Cayman Islands Partner Barnaby Gowrie Relocates to Walkers Dubai

Walkers is pleased to announce Cayman Islands partner Barnaby Gowrie has relocated to Dubai to lead the Insolvency and Dispute Resolution practice.

Barnaby's secondment to the Dubai office is an integral part of Walkers' strategy to provide the best-in-class contentious and restructuring legal services in the Middle East region.

Barnaby brings over 17 years of experience to the Dubai practice and specialises in the complex international contentious and non-contentious restructuring of Cayman Islands companies and partnerships. He also regularly advises governments, sovereign wealth funds, private equity and hedge funds, insolvency practitioners (including Court appointed liquidators) and other market participants with respect to insolvent, distressed or litigious situations.

Dubai managing partner Daniel Wood said, "we are delighted that Barnaby has joined us in Dubai to help cater to our growing clients' needs for insolvency and dispute resolution work. Barnaby's move demonstrates our commitment to our clients in the Middle East and is an invaluable addition as we grow our Dubai insolvency and dispute resolution offering."

Barnaby has also commented, "Walkers is the only offshore firm in the Middle East that has a dedicated, on-the-ground insolvency and dispute resolution presence. We are able to assist Middle Eastern clients on a real time basis which is vital in distressed situations. Walkers Dubai are currently providing innovative offshore solutions to a number of key Middle Eastern market participants regarding a variety of distressed offshore situations across a number of different asset classes. It is an exciting time to be in the region!"
