Walkers London launches EMEA-based Bermuda law practice

Walkers is delighted to announce that its London office has launched a new, fully integrated Bermuda law practice for clients in the EMEA zone.

Working closely with Walkers' Bermuda office, the London-based Bermuda law team is spearheaded by Neil McDonald (Partner, Finance & Corporate), Patrick Ormond (Partner, Finance & Corporate), Rajah Abusrewil (Group Partner, Private Client & Trusts) and Andrew Chissick (Senior Counsel, Insolvency & Restructuring) and is the largest Bermuda law offering in the London market.

This move from Walkers follows the successful large-scale roll out of Bermuda law services in Walkers' Hong Kong and Singapore offices; with Walkers' Bermuda, Hong Kong, London and Singapore offices forming an international powerhouse offering seamless, cross-time zone service to clients requiring legal expertise on their Bermuda law transactions.

Bermuda office Managing Partner, Kevin Taylor, said: "We are delighted to announce Walkers' additional Bermuda capabilities in the London market. London has long been a key partner for the Bermuda jurisdiction and our market-leading offshore law offering in London will add real value to clients looking to explore those synergies."

Walkers' London office provides time-zone sensitive Bermuda law support to clients in the EMEA region across the full range of legal services, including Corporate and M&A, Banking & Finance, Insolvency & Restructuring, Dispute Resolution, and Private Capital & Trusts.

Walkers' London office recently celebrated its 20th anniversary and is both the largest and the leading offshore law firm in London. 

London office Managing Partner, Jack Boldarin, commented: "We are excited to offer our EMEA-based clients time-zone sensitive Bermuda law services from our hub in London.  Our Bermuda law offering in London compliments our market-leading BVI and Cayman law offering and represents a further step in the continued strategic growth of Walkers' London office and further demonstrates our enduring commitment to meeting our clients' requirements and facilitating their business."
