Taylors Bolsters Office with the Hire of Neto and West

Taylors in association with Walkers is pleased to announce two new lateral hires. Natalie Neto has joined Taylors as a partner and Nathalie West has joined as an associate in the Finance & Corporate group. Taylors' Finance & Corporate practice has gone from strength to strength since the opening in January 2016 and the two new hires will deepen the bench available to clients.

Ms. Neto brings over 20 years' legal experience having practised in both in the UK and Bermuda. Natalie advises on a wide range of local and international corporate, commercial and regulatory matters, with particular focus on all aspects of M&A transactions for both public and private companies, including takeovers, tender offers and squeeze outs, amalgamations, mergers, and schemes of arrangement. She also advises on private equity investments, debt and equity capital markets transactions, banking and finance transactions.

Ms. West returns to Bermuda having gained significant experience in London working for Kirkland & Ellis and Weil, Gotshal & Manges. Nathalie's practice at Taylors will focus on a range of finance and corporate transactions, including complex cross border financings, restructurings and mergers and acquisitions. Nathalie also has experience advising private equity sponsors, funds and financial institutions on a variety of financings including leveraged, corporate and acquisition finance matters and restructurings.

Jonathan Betts, Head of Taylors' Finance & Corporate group stated: "We are delighted that Natalie Neto is joining the Taylors team. She is incredibly well regarded in Bermuda and will bring a vast amount of expertise to our practice. We are also pleased to have Nathalie West joining us from London. Nathalie is a young, talented Bermudian lawyer who, having gained experience at top US law firms, will likely become one of this jurisdiction's next stars."
