Taylors Strengthens Insolvency Practice with the Arrival of Benjamin McCosker

Taylors is pleased to announce the arrival of associate Benjamin McCosker into its Insolvency & Dispute Resolution practice. Benjamin joins from Walkers' Hong Kong office, from where he has been practising since 2016.

Benjamin has extensive experience in relation to both contentious and non-contentious insolvency-related matters, having acted for secured and subordinated lenders, noteholders and trustees, distressed funds, insolvency practitioners and various other stakeholders. He has also provided advice in connection with a broad range of financial and operational restructurings and privatisations (of both private and listed companies), including acting for target companies and buyer groups, as well as dissenting shareholders.

"We are delighted that Benjamin has accepted this opportunity to join our Bermuda team," stated Managing Partner, Kevin Taylor. "Benjamin's experience of working with companies in Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China will bolster both our office and the Bermuda jurisdiction. We believe that his arrival at Taylors is another example of our firm's commitment to expanding our presence on island and strengthening the Bermuda legal offering generally."

Benjamin joined Walkers in Hong Kong in 2016, where he advised on a broad range of disputes involving companies listed on the NYSE, NASDAQ, SEHK and SGX. Benjamin's industry experience, principally focused on companies with their operations in Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China, covers banking and financial services, healthcare, technology, energy (with a particular focus on renewables), retail, property and transportation.
