Walkers Grows Hong Kong Finance Practice with New Partner Hire

Walkers is pleased to announce that Nick Davies has joined the firm as a partner in the firm's global Finance & Corporate Group where he will be based in the firm's Hong Kong office.

Nick joins us from an international offshore law firm and comes with a wealth of experience in finance and corporate, with specialist focus on debt capital markets/structured finance and private equity. He will be a strong addition to our Finance team with the ability to advise on Cayman, BVI and Bermuda* law. Nick also has a wealth of onshore experience practising as an English capital markets and finance lawyer with several of the magic circle firms. Nick brings a broad range of international experience and network having worked in the UK, Moscow, Jersey, Cayman and Hong Kong/Greater China.

The hiring of Nick complements the recent addition of two Bermuda associates, Shannon Dyer and Ben Green to the Hong Kong office, allowing us to provide clients in Asia and the Middle East with time-zone friendly Bermuda advice and execution support, adding to the strength of our team of highly talented lawyers in Bermuda.

Andy Randall, Managing Partner of Walkers' Hong Kong office commented: "We are delighted that Nick has joined Walkers. We have earned a solid reputation over the past 15 years in the Asia market for delivering top-quality Cayman and BVI legal advice. We're excited to have been able to expand our offering to include Bermuda law recently from Hong Kong. This advanced offering and the arrival of Nick will further enhance our ability to provide a one-stop offshore solution for our clients."

Commenting on joining Walkers, Nick said: "I am delighted to be joining such a well-regarded international offshore firm, which has a top-tier reputation in Hong Kong and globally. I look forward to working with my new colleagues and being part of a dynamic team of trusted advisors to Walkers' high-calibre clients."
