Walkers - Most Ranked Offshore Restructuring & Insolvency Lawyers

With the most ranked lawyers, Who's Who Legal has confirmed Walkers as the leading offshore law firm for restructuring and insolvency in their 2019 guide.

Walkers has six partners ranked in the Who's Who Legal Guide. This includes Jersey partner Fraser Hern, who is the Head of Walkers' Channel Islands business and is the only ranked restructuring and insolvency lawyer in Jersey.

In the Cayman Islands, partner Neil Lupton is the only offshore lawyer included in the Americas & Caribbean Global Elite Thought Leaders and appears with lawyers from Kirkland & Ellis and Milbank. Partners Colette Wilkins, Matthew Goucke and Barnaby Gowrie have also been ranked in the guide.

In Singapore, Asia partner Robert Foote has been included in the guide for the seventh consecutive year.

Below are a few excerpts from the guide:

"Walkers has an outstanding lawyer in Fraser Hern, who demonstrates wide-ranging knowledge of both contentious and non-contentious matters. He has a highly international background, with experience working in Hong Kong before moving to the firm’s Jersey office."

"Walkers’ Matthew Goucke is “the most gifted advocate in the Cayman Islands”, with specialist insight into private equity matters and superb expertise on cross-border insolvency litigation. Sources note that he is “very good technically”."

"Neil Lupton is a well-established figure in the market who gains widespread support from commentators as “probably the most senior and influential figure in the jurisdiction” for restructuring. He excels on issues arising from distressed situations, advising a range of parties including private equity funds and debtors."

"The “highly thought of” Colette Wilkins is commended by colleagues for her excellent work on contentious-side issues in the insolvency space. A “great lawyer who is much in demand”, she is adept on CVAs and liquidations."
