Walkers IDR Among Top Global Law Firms in GRR 30

Walkers' Global Insolvency & Dispute Resolution Group has moved up the rankings in the latest Global Restructuring Review ("GRR") 30 list and has been named the 12th strongest global law firm for restructuring and insolvency in 2019.

Walkers continues to be the highest ranked offshore law firm on the list. "Entering impressively at 13" last year, the firm has now been ranked in 12th position, scoring 554 points, up from 506. Walkers ranks just behind Cleary Gottleib Steen & Hamilton and Norton Rose Fulbright (in 11th and 10th places, respectively). 

"The consistency in our GRR 30 performance demonstrates our commitment to excellence and is testament to the dedication that our teams in every office and jurisdiction show to our clients. We are delighted that the global team's hard work and skill continues to be recognised by GRR and reflected in their rankings" commented Cayman Islands Insolvency & Dispute Resolution partner, Colette Wilkins.

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

To arrive at the GRR 30, GRR assigns a value to each firm’s top 10 cases, adds the number of partners it has listed in their sister publication, Who’s Who Legal: Restructuring & Insolvency 2019, and includes a small weighting reflecting positions in the GRR 30 last year.
