Walkers IDR Among Top Global Law Firms in GRR 30

Walkers' Global Insolvency & Dispute Resolution Group has been ranked as the 13th strongest global law firm for restructuring and insolvency by Global Restructuring Review ("GRR") and enters their GRR 30 list for 2018.

Walkers, "entering impressively at 13", scored 506, 4 behind Cleary Gottleib Steen & Hamilton and Norton Rose Fulbright (in 11th and 12th places, respectively) and 12 ahead of the 14th firm, Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom. Walkers is also the highest ranked offshore law firm in the list.

"We are delighted that the global team's hard work and skill has been recognised by GRR in their latest GRR 30 rankings. It is a testament to the dedication that our teams in every office and jurisdiction show to our clients," commented Cayman Insolvency & Dispute Resolution partner, Colette Wilkins.

The GRR 100 is a culmination of months of extensive research and is a confirmation that the named firms are a safe pair of hands to tackle cross-border insolvency or restructuring matters around the world. The GRR 30 is a distillation of the GRR 100.

To arrive at the GRR 30, GRR assigned a value to each firm’s top 10 cases, added the number of partners it has listed in their sister publication Who’s Who Legal: Restructuring & Insolvency 2018, and included a small weighting reflecting positions in the 30 last year.
