Walkers Expands Euro CLO Team

Expansion of euro CLO team
Walkers is delighted to announce the expansion of our euro CLO offering as a result of a number of recent promotions and new hires. Matt Hedigan joins the Irish office as an Of Counsel after practising in the finance team of a large international law firm; while Morgan Sheehy and Brendan McCauley join Walkers Professional Services as Vice President and Assistant Vice President respectively.

Unique offering for euro CLO market
Walkers, being the only law firm with offices in Ireland, Jersey and Guernsey, is pleased to be in the unique position to offer Irish, Jersey and Guernsey advice to CLO market participants considering their Brexit strategy.

The combination of a Jersey or Guernsey investment fund financing an Irish originator retention vehicle is proving popular for managers establishing risk retention financing platforms. This provides access to Ireland's extensive double tax treaty network for originator vehicles and gives managers scope in terms of capital raising with Jersey and Guernsey being tried and tested jurisdictions for IPOs.

European CLO Summit
Walkers is one of the key sponsors of the European CLO Summit 2017 taking place in London on 2 November (click here for further details) and Garry Ferguson will be speaking on the "CLO Markets in a Regulated Environment" panel.

Garry Ferguson, Philip Paschalides, Noeleen Ruddy and Therese Redmond will be attending the European CLO summit and look forward to an opportunity to catch up at the conference.
